Since I am interested in transitioning from fashion to interiors, during Wool Week I went to the Campaign for Wool Interiors Collection in London, to see how textile designers are currently working with wool for home products. I was particularly inspired by Caron Penney’s woven tapestry, Naomi Paul’s crochet lighting, Ptolemy Mann’s Ikat sofa and Kit Kemp’s digitally embroidered upholstery fabric.
During London Design Festival I went to a talk about material innovation in fashion. The panel discussion focused on new developments in 3D printing for fashion. It was held at the Pringle store where they showcased their recent material innovation; combining knitwear with 3D printing
I have recently been thinking about taking my work into a more sculptural direction and feel that lighting could be a way of doing this. At London Design Festival (LDF) I was inspired by a few designers; Louise Tucker, Salsabeel Amin, Mutton & Flamingo, Valentina Caretta, Melanie Porter and Fanatic House.
Homeware design, brand values and ethics of a few of my favourite designers at LDF; Quinoa Paris, Pepe Heykoop, Otago, Slow Design, Krasznai, Leah Jensen.
Textiles for interiors at LDF: Lucy Simpson, Zuzunaga, Donna Wilson, Beldi Rugs, Pappelina, Kenana & Yurta.
