'Monochrome Murder' This work intends to provoke thought through printed textiles, telling a story based around crime and the justice system. I have created alternative well drawn designs and prints for menswear fashion.
Having always been intrigued by criminology and how high-level crime is dealt with throughout Britain, I have created innovative, unorthodox designs, combining interests with printed textiles and assembling an alternative trend-driven menswear collection. I visited HMP Shrewsbury to gather first-hand imagery to enforce the basis of the project. I took into account structural references throughout the prison such as cell bars and convicts' emotions, and expanded on this with the intention of telling a story by collecting imagery of crime scenes inspired by notorious killers. Owning an eye for detail and being drawn to intricacy, I represented this through monochrome drawings that have been translated into both screen and digital prints. Choosing a monochrome colour palette fitting to the mood of the collection also inspired the title of 'Monochrome Murder'. This palette was used to develop two in-depth, hand rendered, repeated screen print lengths as statement pieces for the collection. I aspire to gain more experience within the textiles industry. My career aims include progressing to become a print designer within a fashion company/house.
