Screen printing using a silk screen print on colored cotton fabrics.
The collection is inspired by positive and negative spaces created by stripes found in different settings. These stripes are deconstructed into graphic elements and designs & then into simple black and white paintings on cotton fabric. The paintings are further deconstructed and rearranged digitally to obtain a silk screen pattern.

Stripes photographed in different settings
Paintings on cotton fabric only using black paint to add
focus on positive and negative space.
Repeats created after digitally distorting
the painted black & white stripes.
Scale and placement accuracy of motifs are decided
through designing a simple shift dress and placing the
motif over the dress.
Final design transferred on the screen
A bold color palette inspired by Afro's painting, 'Yellow Country'.
Although the painting consists predominantly of earthy tones, I focused on lifting the
more subtle and quirky colors and using them as my primary shades.
I swapped Afro's palette of using earthy tones to using his accent colors as a main feature with earthy neutrals to create an exciting contrast.
