Archive work from Chelsea University of Arts London
First time for everything :
1st year of university and 1st experimental knitting project i tackled. After a year of multy media and mixed disciplins exploration i choice knit as the xpression for the end of the year personal project.
Concept is inspired by a research of fungi.
All the elements of the piece are hand knitted on mix size needles and a fusion of yarns.
The result was exhibited Brick Lane, London, where Foundation students from the Universities of Arts London participated in a fashion show in the middle of the square.
2) 'SWAY's project description inspired to gather information from our environment and surroundings. It especially referred to movement in nature. e.g how the trees, water, leaves move during a storm, or a pack of birds in the rain...
The task was to gather research, draw and produce a final product, reflecting our subject.
My inspiration was jelly fish.
This hand knitted mohair dress won 2nd place in the fashion show competition. The panel included representatives from Louis Vuitton.
The dress took 6 days to hand knit using a mix of 2mm up to 10mm needles.
