My final collection inspiration came from the dandelion in all it’s forms. I wanted to illustrate the dandelion in a positive form. I love the term used “some see a weed, some see a wish” when they look at a dandelion. I want to grasp the beauty that some people give a sense of invisible hope to the dandelion when making a wish. The childish innocence behind the concept is applicable to everyone. As when all else goes wrong you need to always have hope , hope that things get better. The innocence, playfulness and purity from this concept is the driving force behind my collection. I will be using machine embroidery, mixed textile dyeing and print to illustrate the “imperfect” plant that has inspired me in many ways.
To wish is to dream , to dream is to live.
