LIAN CARA

 

As a designer, creating pattern through the construction of a garment, rather than using traditional methods such as print has always inspired my work. More recently, I have combined this design concept with laser cutting to create intricate design details that without it would not have been possible.

In this collection, I have used architectural arches and shapes to inform the silhouette and structure of the garments, whilst maintaining a sense of fluidity and movement which can be found in the natural landscapes of the welsh countryside.

In order to do this each garment is individually created by draping large pieces of fabric on a mannequin. The information from this is then used to create complex pattern pieces.
