About my design:

Concept context design. Creating digital design from scrap found around my city, I take everyday simple photographs and turn them into busy kaleidoscopic patterns for fashion. I'm passionate about sustainability in fashion, and I like people to see the beautiful in the unattractive - most of this being rubbish. This image is made up from a rusting scrap of metal in my street.
Materials: metal, paint, post, rust

Hey Lauren, this one is really cool! What fabric is it made of?

THIS IS MY DESIGN


This is just a concept illustration at the moment, but I have made similar shirts on cellulose cottons and out of scraps of synthetic fabrics as these are what I have access to print inks for :)

Great idea! I'd love to see the result of an actual printed shirt. Would the shirt itself also be made of recycled materials? ;-)

I love making my clothes out of recycled pieces of material, i'm a bit of a hoarder, keeping all my old clothes so i can cut them up into new stuff! There's two choices when it comes to printed material, I normally print them with eco-friendly inks on organic fabrics as the quality is beautiful and slightly less damaging to the environment. Also you can use sublimation, which is the technique i use on scrap fabric. Sometimes the colour and quality on this is compromised so it all depends on what you like!
