Paige Denham is a printed textile design graduate from Loughborough University who is influenced by colour, texture, mark making, culture and the urban world. Throughout her time at Loughborough University, Paige expressed her creativity through bold mark making, underpinned with a graphic and illustrative hand to produce both screen printed and digitally printed designs. Paige’s style is personal, expressive and often explores her love of culture and travel. Past projects include the exploration of India, African tribes and her home of South East London. These resulted in both fashion and interior outcomes.
'Urban Tribe', her most recent work, draws inspiration from the city of London and the large amount of ethnic diversity it harbours. This initially helped to inspire thought about sub cultures in the city and sparked interest particularly in areas where people of Afro-Caribbean origin reside. ‘Urban Tribe’ is a collective of multiple ethnicities mixed together, as seen in the city of London and a true celebration of culture. Paige has worked to produce a unisex collection, aimed to satisfy a consumer with a love of mixing bold pattern and colourful print as well as being curious about the world around them. Paige completed a industry-based placement year in a variety of design-led roles including fabric sourcing, visual merchandising and trend forecasting. This experience has allowed her to build a great insight and understanding of the industry as a whole. Through this she has gained an invaluable skill set that can be adapted to many roles within the design world. Paige intends to pursue her passion for colour and pattern as a printed textile designer.
