TEXTILE, GRAPHIC DESIGN

Prints & Materials



My graphic design background has naturally evolved into textile design. Exploring various materials and printing techniques, I discovered ways to add dimension to garments.

To create the Paint print (shown here), I worked with ink on paper until I achieved the desired motion and finished it digitally.  



I designed the Glitch print by meticulously painting, cutting and pasting elements from glitch error screenshots, a very minucious process, like digital embroidery.

Intended for mixing and matching, these prints interconnect through their accent colors and details.

Created for the W!TCHES collection, a custom printed lining adds a pleasant surprise.

FASHION DESIGN

W!tches Fashion Concept



W!TCHES is a unisex fashion concept and a call for creative self-expression.

Inspired by the 80’s New Wave androgynous icons, the label proposes bold pieces that flirt with excentricity and unexpected materials juxtapositions.





This collection’s theme draws inspiration from the cult film Suspiria. The vivid cinematography and rainy ambiance influenced both the color palette and the choice of light-reflecting materials as patent leather, velvet and satin. 



The pieces were developped using multiple techniques, from flat pattern making to draping, according to each style’s needs. All patterns and final prototypes were made by the designer.

The branding design can be viewed here

Roles: creative direction, design, pattern making and construction of all garments.
