We have been a regular reader of Pattern Observer since Fashion Vignette was launched.  We wanted to share their recent and inspiring post from their blog, a challenge on their Textile Design Lab on WGSN's "Tidal Beachcomber" trend for Spring/Summer '17.  Below are some of the featured and stand-out work that was created for this challenge.  You can view the entire post and other prints here

The actual oceanic motifs were the primary inspiration for this collection, but I wanted to abstract these a bit and work with textures that evoked an underwater sensation. I spent a lot of time creating the individual motifs with layouts already is mind so when I moved to Photoshop it was mostly execution mixed with some unexpected deviations. Watercolor seemed like a natural fit and helped keep the tone of the collection consistently on brief.”

“Inspired from the WGSN Tidal Beachcomber story-  I was particularly drawn to painted shells, splashes of water and markings on sand. Instead of going for just indigos I wanted subtle colours showing through. I played around with few mediums but found Gouache paints  and pencil colours best to experiment with. As am doing sellable sketch course too, it really helped me focus on just sketching once my mood board was in its place. I truly enjoyed a month challenge to keep sketching and coming up with this collection of prints.”
