I produced final drawings of my collection designs. I used contextual drawings and feel they are effective and show structure, composition and colour within my designs.
I used origami books and structural pieces as inspiration for my collection. I also used my general mark making and shapes from my research to feed my development work.
Translating designs into knit.
I used patterns and shapes to develop through my research to sampling. I contrasted colours together and used punchcards on the knitting machines to translate into knit.
I used various techniques to produce this final vest sample. I combined yarns to create a pastel colour palette that catches each colour in different light sources. I made the central panel a main focus of the design and feel it works extremely well, creating a focal point and 3D raised surface.
