graduate collection 2019/2020
Coloratusphagus adornare is a tribute to the bacteria.
Starting with the digital development of bacteria-inspired prints, the Coloratusphagus adornare collection was created.
The strongly contrasting colours of the prints imitate the subsequent colouring of the formerly black and white microscope images. In contrast, the prints, which are held in different shades of grey, embody these original black and white images.
I partially overlaid the digitally printed fabrics manually by screen printing and bead embroidery. This additional processing of my printed textiles was a very important part of my work, as it gives them an additional overload and finish.
Another element of my collection formed by embroidery is the bacteria cell bag. Its motif imitates a bacterial cross section and is brought to the leather bag by embroidery.
A "supersaturation" colours and fabric mass, that was the basic idea.
Based on this, I used the darts, which were actually intended to narrow down clothes, to add fabric mass to my garments. These oversized darts make it possible to form an enormous amount of fabric on a silhouette that reshapes the body without losing any of the fabric.
