Project: Denim patterns (2011)
A collection of denim patterns meant for fashion design. The inspiration comes from a jeans pocket, which leaves a darker spot on the trousers, when ripped off. The author’s own method of making patterns is not based on printing or dyeing, but on washing the colours off – only the denim´s colour itself is used here. Stripes are sewn on the textile (according to the pattern of my choice), then bleached in a chemical solution that bleached the fabric. The places where the stripes covered the textile stay dark, and the rest reveals a bright pattern.
