Make It In Design Patternbombing Project

by becqua on November 15, 2015, in the News category

#patternbombing the Fashion Museum

Hundreds of designers & illustrators recently took part in the Make It In Design #patterbombing online design event, submitting images of buildings and landmarks decorated with patterns. The finished results from pattermakers included iconic images from around the world.

My particular inspiration was a small piece of Georgian fabric I was given many years ago. The fabric was hand-embroidered by Maria Prouett in 1822 for her going-away dress. I decorated the top half of the Fashion Museum with a pattern inspired by this beautiful embroidery. I juxtaposed this with a brighter graffiti-style version.
