The new project for semester two has started and what better way than with a little jaunt to Paris!!! Yes we’re off to Premiere Vision and Indigo for all things “Future Forecasting” .
For the next 6 weeks were taking one of the trends forecasted for this year -I’ve chosen Summer 2011. Seaside Stripes is my title and I’ve to research and develop my own ideas and present a fully explored sketchbook, development boards and printed textile samples. The colours forecasted by Textile View are aquatic blues and greens, black and white with pinks corals and oranges and inspired by the sea side and underwater! I’ve started by drawing and photographing in the East Neuk of Fife – just on my doorstep as well. Thanks to the fishermen of Fife for some amazing boats …..
Tonight see’s me on the sleeper to London and then Eurostar to Paris tomorrow – Wednesday we’re at Premiere Vision and Thursday is the day to see as much as possible! I cant wait – so until the weekend Im signing out and look forward to telling you all about it.
