A little knit of what you fancy...

The work of Sandra Backlund has been one of my biggest inspirations since specialising in knitted textiles. Her work is very structural and often very abstract but still very wearable. My knit work I am currently producing is inspired by the theme of architecture, I am using Backlund's work as inspiration and to try and create similar structural fabrics. I was lucky enough to see some of Backlund's work when I visited the Fashion and Textiles Museum in London last year.

My love for shoes grows...
These shoes were inspired by the theme of punk. I took a lot of inspiration from Vivienne Westwood throughout this project.I tried to create the most outrageous and quirky shoes I could using a variety of materials pins, ping pong balls, fur & tartan.
