Military Patchwork

I studied various World War artefacts for a Military assignment in my first year of university. The final result was a patchworked waistcoat, I took detailing from war time uniforms, badges and stamps, the striking purple was added to give it a contemporary twist.

Some of the developing samples for this piece included experimenting with patchwork, trialing different colours, fabrics and papers. It was at this stage I began adding sequins and beading to give a more luxurious effect to something that would otherwise be very formal.
