inspiration

My new collection taking shape…

My latest collection is named ` P L A Y  `. My inspiration come from the beautiful Japanese kimono and obis. I have used their pretty colors combinations and translated them into my weavings. I used to visit Tokyo several times during my years working as a fashion designer. I fell totally in love with that city. Arriving in Tokyo was like entering another world.

 

Craftsmanship

During the Wool & Yarn Fair in North Yorkshire, I had the pleasure to visit The Graduate Showcase, in association with Embroiderer´s Guild. It´s always a pleasure and great inspiration for an (old) textile designer to see, how young designers are developing today – I noticed that craftsmanship and handmade skills are still crucial if you want to stand out from the crowd – that brought a smile to my face 🙂
