Amelia Bailey is a recent graduate from Birmingham City University
with a BA (Hons) in Textile Design, specialising in Embroidery. Amelia
focuses on creating tactile surface textures through hand and digital
By using natural dyeing methods, Amelia takes a sustainable approach
to her work, considering material choices for a truly bespoke finish.
A neutral but effective colour scheme allows the surface textures to be
the main focus and creates a calming and comforting feel.
Amelia’s exhibition at New Designers explores anxiety and depression,
with a focus on body image being the main message behind her work.
By embracing skin textures, Amelia’s designs consist of fabric manipulation
and contrasting textures to embrace ‘imperfections’
Amelia is excited to continue her design journey, aiming herself at the
luxury market with possibilities for her designs to be used for couture
and bridal applications.
