Working with Akira Isogawa

30 Sep 2015

In April of this year I went to Sydney to visit Akira Isogawa in his studio as part of a research trip for my PhD.  I showed him my work and I asked him if he would like me to design some prints for his collections which he agreed yes!  So now we are in the process of organising how it’s going to work and how we will go about the process…Very exciting!AkiraKels

36 Ashe Silk swatches

29 Sep 2015

Being a textile designer is a wonderful thing.  Patterns, colours, rhythms, contrasts, interiors, motifs, fashion, objects, textures, tactility…these are my everyday ponderings…These are 36 Ashe silk swatches I recently gave to Akira Isogawa in April as part of a Fabric collection book.  He told me at Telstra Perth Fashion Festival in September when I saw him, that he 36swatcheskeeps them on his desk. Nice!
