My final collection concept was based on weather. I looked mainly at thewinter sky and explored my theme using photography, looking into clouds,their textures, colours and moods. I aimed to create a sophisticated but warm and cozy winter collection of garments and accessories, to wrap up inagainst the elements.

Biological Identity
My work is based on Biological Identity. Through personal research of my own inner identity, i.e. D.N.A, bacteria and electron microscope work I have produced a fabric collection for contemporary women’s fashion. Mainly focusing on magnification, multiplication and the structure of my research imagery. All pieces reflecting clinical, contemporary science and modern living.

Liz Collins
(my scan)

lizcollins.com / fashioning fabrics - Elyssa da Cruz

Liz Collins is an artist and designer, recognized internationally for her use of machine knitting to create ground-breaking clothing, textiles, and 3-D installations.

After five years as an independent designer of seasonal ready-to-wear collections in New York City, Collins returned to her alma mater, Rhode Island School of Design, as an Assistant Professor in the Textile Department. In addition to teaching, Collins currently designs knitwear under her own label, which she sells at trunk sales and select boutiques in New York and Tokyo. She also collaborates with other designers, producing signature knit pieces and collections for them. A member of the Council of Fashion Designers of America, Collins was has been cited by the New York Times as a creator of “brilliantly crafted” garments and a “designer with many industry accolades”. In the spring of 2005, a new facet of Collins’ work emerged: a series of performance-based installations called “KNITTING NATION”, that employ uniformed machine knitters to create a multi-sensory experience that examines the relationship of humans to manufacturing and the process of machine knitting. Collins is a 2006 United States Artists Target Fellow in Crafts and Traditional Arts, and received at $50,000 fellowship award for this honor.

'Inside/Outside'. In developing the concept of inside/outside I will be taking inspiration from the doll itself and many other areas of interest, the human body, mannequins, the patchwork quilt, and different illnesses and their medical treatments. Through my visual research in these areas I aim to develop work where distorted forms come together in fashion with beautiful fabrics.

I love this red one here in the centre.. Is that possible with knit? I didn't know you could 'draw' --it seems like embroidery. Unfortunately she doesn't have a write-up next to her work
