Silk Dupion Wisteria Print by Ashe
29 Jul 2011
Silk Dupion is a wonderful textile. It has a distinctive texture and body to it that cannot be reproduced in a polyester fabric. This image shows a detail from a silver Kimono style draping and my Wisteria print.
Wall Decals and printed silk

Another print from this collection includes this blue silk Pampas Grass print and Grid Obe. The embossed wall decal behind Angie is another fun thing I am playing with at the moment!
Behind the Scenes photoshoot…
18 Jul 2011
Here is a behind the scenes shot of the beautiful Angie, posing for some shots. I took the photos myself, so it was no means a professional shoot! However!… the aim was to capture the print designs and the effect of draping cloth rather than using structured garments, and for that purpose it was a success. I will use the photos for both my Masters project, but also for entry into the Perth Fashion Festival event “Threads” which is coming up in September…

12 Jul 2011

Draping Silk on the body
26 Jun 2011
I am drawn to the simplest of clothing shapes – scarves and sarrongs that can be draped and played with upon the body. Silk allows a freedom to drape without adding bulk and endless possibilities for layering colours. Here I have layered a beautiful Fuschia Silk Crepe de Chine with a linen Obe.
