Fabrics Inspired by the Welsh Landscape

For my personal investigation, I was heavily inspired by the construct of landscapes, after having visited Wales in the summer of 2020. I realised its intricate textures such as the water, rocks and mountains allowed for much versatility regarding different forms of experimentation. While experimenting with several different techniques, my main focus shifted to fabric manipulation, as well as prints. I personally really enjoyed exploring different ways I could work with fabric to create a wide variety of textures that would relate to the concept of nature. Throughout the entirety of the project, I wanted to ensure that my final piece would capture the raw and natural essence of nature through the form of a fashion piece. It was pieced together by the different elements of landscapes that could easily be rearranged and I thought this was an effective way of presenting my ideas in different ways.
