New fantasy design prints!

Hello everybody! Most of you probably know that I am actually studying in textile, while working part time in the fashion industry. One of my newest projects in textile is to design prints inspired from fantasy books or stories. On my part, I choose Aladdin! The story of Aladdin is so rich…With his three wishes and the help of a magic lamp, all of his dreams came true! But seriously, I wasn’t inspired by Aladdin itself, but I am a huge fan of India simple as that! Also, I love the story  when European Kingdoms were fitting between each other, in order to find the road to India for the spice trade. I am amazed by  architectural artistry, the food, the elaborate fashion designs and, of course,  the gorgeous textiles and prints designs from this country. Also for this project, I had to chose two colors, I was torn between purple which represents royalty and fuchsia, sensuality. In the end, I chose fuchsia!

Textile project 3

Good evening art doll lovers! On tonight’s post, I will continue with my third textile project from school and this was a huge one since the goal was to create three bags with the same prints, but with few modifications with the finishing colors. The main theme was the Me, My self and I idea! It sounds big and somewhat pretentious, but It was a good way to put our personal style out there and let it speak for itself. We also had the  mission to use a word that has a true meaning to us, and mine was the word FOI, this french word means “faith” or “believe”. Personally, with faith and by believing you can do everything and go everywhere and there are no boundaries…when you fall you just learn and stand up and your wonderful journey goes on…All students used a very heavy canvas for this project and I have to admit that the creative process was my favorite one. I worked with various techniques for creating the two compositions of prints: cutting, stamping, hand painting with both sponges or brushes and, of course, I was inspired by Atelier Miss Georgia’s logo, but also by my own style, since I do wear and collect a lot of scarves! Thanks once again everyone for your kindness and interest!

Textile project 2 (Fokiko)

Hi to you all! Here is my second textile project 2, but this time with cold colors and modeling by my beautiful Fukiko! Like the outfit made for Betty, hers is only pin in the back. The main idea was to see how the prints would turn out and how I needed to work with them for future textile projects created especially for my OOAK dolls. Hope you like it and we will see each other in my next post!

Best regards

Textile Project 2 (Betty)

Good evening! As I said on my previous post, this second personal textile project, inspired by Haitian Naive Art painting by Pierre Maxo, would be used to make future outfits. Here is the first result with the hot colors! I don’t know what you think about it, but this outfit was made directly on Betty, it could have been another doll, but I did not think of one particularly. See you on my next post with the second outfit made with the cold colors and another doll! Thanks/Merci for watching.

My first textile Print

Hi everyone! I think it’s important to share a little bit on what I have been doing since I have started to study textiles last August. I have completed many school projects since than. On tonight’s post I want to share with you my first textile print! It is a personal project of mine were I used an ecru color fabric made in a mix of viscose and cotton. For this print, I only chose three colors: dark green, lime and citrus, and this is due to the fact that I decided to use a screen to make the repeat by using wax paper. Since each paper represents a design and a specific color, there was one wax paper for each color. Before, I make more post of my dolls and especially of my mysterious Lara, I think it is very important to show how the “live” designs should look like…On my previous post, I have shown some of my sketch books with a few designs, but it did not communicate the “essence” of my work. For this main reason,  I decided that my three next posts will be concentrated on my textile projects and my mysterious Lara will come right after. Thanks everyone!
