10 FEET SS2016

______________________________

Pattern design for the spring 2016 collection for fashion brand 10 FEET.
The 10 FEET woman is a free spirit with an effortlessly cool style and tough raw edge.

The commission was to create a rich tropical repeat pattern in colour separations, with a bird or two to spot between the foliage. Vibrant accent colours, and pretty flowers. It had 2 directions, so it can be used upside down as well. It was screen printed and used for a dress, a tunic, a skirt and a shirt/blouse.
