I am currently studying my MA Textile Design Innovation at Nottingham Trent University. I am using my specialism of knitting to explore how knitted textures can complement and contradict specific areas of the female structure

Multi-directional stripes as a trend confirmed once more this #NYFW - as seen yesterday at Cushnie et Ochs

A little glitter goes a long way at the #531Jerome #NYFW #SS15 presentation. We love the use of multiple brooches to turn a simple well-tailored pant into a work of wearable art.

Bows and the corset type structure combined work well to balance and enhance the architecture of the female frame

Again exploring the contradiction of the female body. The bows have popped up again too.

I was thinking about Illusion and the dazzle ships during WWII whilst I was developing this idea. As well as research on corsets during the 19th century.

Eventually a selected few of ideas will be translated into knit.

Pleated bow. Definitely adds volume and structure to the body, and confuses the viewers eye

Experimenting with contradicting the female form
