My initial inspiration for my Final collection came from the shapes and colours in urban graffiti from various European cities. Initial drawings were developed from primary research collected during time spent in Paris, Malta, Amsterdam, Portugal, London and Brighton. As my project developed so did my ideas. I wanted to create street wear inspired by sportswear, using waterproofs and a range of polyesters and nylons. Many of my hand printed samples include 3MM reflective glass beads and heat reacting dyes. Muted tones as backgrounds and base colours with accent neon colours seemed fitting from visual research I had collected, allowing my prints to come alive.
