ankh resortwear 2010/2011

While working on some textile ideas for the sunsilk competition I am currently devoting all my time too (ah so few hours in the day!), I was looking over my previous textile work to get motivated. Some great textile designs I did a couple of years ago were for a resortwear collection I did in 2nd year uni, so I decided to do a post about that collection and the subsequent photoshoot for it.

Titled ‘ankh’, the resortwear collection was based on an Eygptian theme, exploring historical costume, jewellry, colour and adornment. I produced a swimsuit which combined several different sublimation textile ideas and a pair of draped linen harem-style pants. Modelled by my gorgeous friend Hayley Ellis and hair and makeup by the talented Alexis Allen, I shot the looks in two great locations (my parents’ backyard and my Dad’s work – aka Awaba Colliery – oh the glamorous world of fashion!) to produce a mini look book.
