Decadence explores the abstraction of shape and colour of The Royal Pavilion in Brighton to develop a contemporary take on the old regency pleasure palace through surface texture and pattern. By isolating detailed areas of the building, specifically looking at the over the top detailing and unusual structures found on the exterior, combined with a fresh and contemporary colour palette based upon the Chinese inspired interiors I have created a collection of samples that reflect a modern take on the 18th Century Palace. Through the combination of techniques such as, Wilcom CAD embroidery and digital printing along with fabric manipulation techniques such as smoking and a sensitive use of colour and fabric, I have created a collection of refined fashion fabrics suitable for high end women’s fashion.
