For the Textile’s Unit - 'On the Runway' I am creating a one-piece overall outfit.
Sustainability is a key aspect that we need to incorporate in our design. I began to research the dying process and soon discovered the impact synthetic dyes are having on the environment. I was inspired by the colours of nature and became curious about what organic materials could be used to dye fabric. So over the holidays, I experimented with a variety of plant-based materials such as apricot leaves, tea, raspberries, blueberries, beetroot and turmeric and was amazed at the unexpected yet beautiful colours they produced.
