Beginning my third year I wanted to explore my interest into costume making and design further. I have begun by reviewing my previous work and choosing successful elements with potential to be developed further, including screen printing, fabric manipulation and free hand embroidery.
As well as extending my knowledge of computer programmes such as photoshop to diversify my skills further.
I began by selecting a painting to work from and inform my colour palette and texture/patten inspiration. I have chosen an illustration from Edmund Dulac’s Beauty and the Beast collection and produced a colour board to accompany it.
I plan to produce a range of samples around scheherazade’s Arabian Nights tales.
