After using a pale colour palette I decided it was not as modern as I would have liked. In the second semester I returned my focus to the colour palette and dyed up fabrics to suit the style I wanted.

I began a Floral project in the first semester of my second year, I combined patchworking with contemporary embroidery depicting floral images. I tried to choose more unusual imagery such as seed heads and the centers of flowers rather than typical outlines of flowers.

In my second year I worked on designs for digital print. The trend was Evolve, Devolve so I started combining drawings of birds and butterflies with barometers and overlaying bold geometrics. I started by creating collages with my owns drawings, patterns and bright painted papers.
I then took these designs on to Photoshop to develope layout ideas and experiment thoroughly with colour. This lead to creating a series of fashion illustrations to demonstrate how these designs could be used.
