Megan_McNeill_Rouda_Australian_Fashion_Label_07

We’re loving Melbourne based label Rouda which is the brainchild of textile designer Megan McNeill. Her work has recently caught the attention of the Patternbank team and here we ask Megan a few questions about how she got started and about her success to date, with an insight into what inspires her beautiful work.

Megan_McNeill_Rouda_Australian_Fashion_Label_04

How did you get into designing textiles, did one thing start your career?

I was always a keen sewer and drawer. After high school I began studying fashion design and there was something about it that I wasn’t quite enjoying about it. One of my classrooms was shared with the textile design faculty at the university and I was fascinated by the beautiful patterns hung on the walls, and transferred over to study textile design that next year. Funnily enough, I returned to fashion design when I launched my own clothing label, Rouda, last year.

Striking Linework

scotchblue-patternbank-striking-linework

From tabby cats and wood grain to crosswalks and ladder rungs, stripes are all around you. Their simple structure makes them a classic pattern that’s been used for thousands of years – but it also means that they’re a vital part of modern design vocabulary. Lately, there’s been a resurgence of stripes with a bold, modern twist. Our Striking Linework pattern reflects that trend, and incorporates sharp angles that personalize the simple stripe and give it power. A fractured, abstract look also helps dimensionalize stripes to add depth and form to any surface.

Mod Optic

scotchblue-patternbank-mod-optic

3D geometric designs might seem relatively new, but you can find them in unexpected places – like woven baskets, latticework, and marble floors – that have existed for centuries. More recently, well-known artists like M.C. Escher have also drawn on these strong mathematical shapes and forms to define what’s known as “optical art.” Building on these traditions, bold geometric designs are now making their way back into the market with subtle twists in scale and color. Our Mod Optic pattern draws on these strong three-dimensional patterns for a clean, modern style that communicates sophistication and audacity.
