Accessories That Transform

This waistcoat was inspired from the work of Architect Zaha Hadid.

It transforms into a beach bag with a zip and a hook!

This is it on the Catwalk in Dundee College Fashion Show.

Then the transformation on the Catwalk.
I was so pleased it worked out on the night and looked great!

Layers of text from birth and marriage certificates printed onto various materials and papers with a photo of a baby peeking through the trees

Layers of text interwoven into textured knit of wire, wool, ribbon and machine wrapped cord.

Hidden words within the layers of surface.

These images are elements of a hanging for a project called "Palimpsest".

This is the central panel for the hanging.

This is an element of one of the side panels- stylised leaves with photos printed onto organza layered with birth certificates and marriage certificates onto acetates stitched with silver metallic thread.

These are samples of my work I have done for my HNC in Textile Art. I have used various tools to distress the fabric and a rusting technique to embellish the fabric with beautiful patterns. The samples are finished with machine and hand stitching and also using an embellisher.
