Final Project

What lies behind the facade

‘What lies behind the facade’ is an unisex transitional streetwear collection inspired by the architecture surrounding the City of London and Canary Wharf.  By delving deeper into how light has an impact on the imagery projected onto glass, design development started from detailed gouache paintings, leading to photographic collages which have been digitally manipulated into abstract geometric patterns. 

The collection explores sublimation printing, screen printing, weaving and quilting using a variety of different materials.
