Screen printing Jersey…

19 May 2010

Jungle feverWhy did I call this print “Panda” you ask? Well because I already have a print called “Bamboo” and Panda’s eat Bamboo so that is my reasoning! This is black jersey freshly printed…heading for the sewing machines…

Hand Silk Screen Printing

06 Apr 2010

Hand screen printed textiles are the hallmark of Ashe. Although screen printing is extremely arduous, the results always keep me going back to do more. You really can’t beat the look of hand printed silk – it’s almost alchemical to watch a table full of plain silk suddenly become drenched in exquisite decadent ornamental designs that I’ve drawn myself. This piece of fabric I’m printing here will be transformed into dresses for autumn…hope you enjoy the picture….Printing 101

It’s all in the details…

23 Oct 2009

This is a tiny section from one of my recent 2 colour way prints “Fortune Tree”. If you click to enlarge the image hopefully you can see the delicate structure and texture of the fabric and the graphic build up of ink in some places to create a third shade of yellow. It is these tiny little details which make ashe garments such treasures. I used this fabric in my “Paradise” Dress for this season.

 

Enjoy!detail

Ashe Stencil Collection

21 Oct 2009

I have lost count of how many stencils I have hand drawn, put onto silk screen and printed and then filed away in my map drawers. I have definetly over 200…maybe nearly 300. The favourites like “Cherry Blossom” and “Arabesque” seem to never leave a silk screen – they just keep remaining favourites for all my customers. I’m looking forward to a time in my life when I can collate and display them properly and publish a book to go alongside. Watch this space!Sifting through stencils

Baroque print design

21 Sep 2009

Baroque art and architecture is truly extravagant and over the top. It arose in Europe in the 17th Century and its mood is of barely suppressed passion and I love it for its totally exuberant spirit. The subject matter is also sympathetic to a lot of my Ashe motifs – lush florals and foliates, birds and butterflies and carved frieze’s. I drew about 10 new print designs for this season and one of my favourites is this “Baroque Butterfly” design which is a two colour way print. I used it on two of my dresses for Perth Fashion Festival this year. It is shown here in a pink/purple colour way as it is laid out on my print table to dry.Printing 101
