All Traces Of Man explores the definitive relationship between nature and industrialism. Creating an environment where natural and industrial elements are appreciated. This collection showcases the manipulation of fabric to recreate corrugated metal, also involving rope detailing and knitwear inspired by nature.
Inspired by two artists, Kate Blacker who explores the relationship to sculpture and painting and Jonathan Jimenez a photographer who's interest focuses on abandoned buildings reclaimed by nature. The textiles within this collection are influenced by Blacker's corrugated metal and mountain paintings, as well as Jimenez's nature photography. These evolved into prints, knitwear influenced by natural elements, as well as fabric manipulated to create corrugated fabric.
This project includes several different elements. A Graduate digital portfolio, a conceptual Look Book, and 3 Final garments that were showcased at BCU Preview Show.
