Vlamink Woods is a project I made my freshman year. Each student was assigned an artist to use as inspiration for a garment. I was given french painter Maurice de Vlamink. I took inspiration from Vlaminks brush strokes, bold colors and trees. I decided to use an applique technique for my textile design, in which I stitched an applique tree using several layers of different colored cotton fabric. I then scanned my applique tree and made it into a print in Adobe Photoshop. For this project, I used a pigment fabric printer and printed my design onto _____ fabric. I then hand sewed pieces of suede onto branches. Along with my dress, I made a suede purse with my applique tree attached as a feature.
