Introduction to Textiles: Project outline: Develop a collection based off of 5 looks for a designer that is well known for their prints. Prints can be silk dyed, digital print, tie dye, etc. Mood Board, Color board, Lineup, and Process Book must be documented.
I chose fashion designer, Prabal Gurung, because of his bold take on prints and mixing up different textures with tailored and draped looks. He is originally from Nepal and resides in New York where he shows his collections for NYFW every season. In his collections, he incorporates a sense of his own culture with the feel of New York, while making a woman feeling confident and sexy in his pieces. I chose to focus my concept for his line on the landscape of the Himalaya mountains in Nepal and cityscape of New York. All Prints were first silk dyed and then turned into digital prints to capture the trend for AW 15.
