Description

Digital textile printing and other technologies provide for a continually expanding rage of design possibilities (Campbell & Parsons, 2004). For example, scholar Tameka Ellington has used digital printing with leather to create wearable art pieces inspired by nature (Ellington, 2014). By understanding this past research of innovative fashion technologies, I wanted to contribute to future research and create a design utilizing these technologies while also using nature as inspiration. The purpose of the design was to create a wearable art piece representing a scene of a flower fairy in spring by using fashion technology and handcrafting. Using orchids as the visual and conceptual focus of my design, I decided to recreate the visuals using a digital textile printer, laser cuter, and hand crafting.
