Sourced_Vintage_Studio_Baroque_Interiors

Patternbank caught up with Claire Foster, vintage collector and owner of Sourced Vintage Studio, to hear her thoughts on the catwalk’s influence, on current print and pattern trends.

What key vintage prints or historic eras are you feeling will be influences next season?

I’m really feeling the romanticism of the renaissance period being a big influencer on florals for the more feminine for womenswear that has been gaining pace – especially for dresses and occasion wear. Also I think that historic interior prints, opulent Baroque in particular, look interesting for winter – in heavier fabrics and particularly for outerwear. I also love the gothic black-out florals that have been evolving over the past couple of seasons and think they will be really important for A/W 16/17.

Peter_Pilotto_In_Conversation_At_The_Victoria_And_Albert_Museum_9

As part of their programme of inspirational evening events the Victoria & Albert Museum showcased fashion designers Peter Pilotto and Christopher De Vos in conversation with Kinvara Balfour. The Patternbank team were there to gain a little insight into the creative minds behind the successful fashion label Peter Pilotto.
After graduating together from the famous Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerp, considered one of the strongest and most creative fashions schools in the world, they decided to re-locate to London in order to launch their careers. Peter had already attracted attention with his final collection and with the help and support from the British Fashion Council and the fashion press, their business was already given the boost it needed for commercial success. As a collaborative business the designers experimented with various combinations of both the names, but with nothing working they decided it had to be Peter Pilotto, “It just sounded good”.

RETAIL-SNAPSHOT-TRAINERS-IN-PRINT-0002

Pattern and print is everywhere at the moment and in particular the trainer market who are joining forces with some of the most talented designers and artists around. From Liberty teaming up with brands like Nike and Vans to adorn trainers with classic Liberty patterns to more new contemporary prints. Also designers Eley Kishimoto and artists Zio Ziegler and Takashi Murakami have added their distinctive style to the Vans classic slip-on, clothing and bags.

A fairly new company Inkkas has adopted a novel way of choosing which trainers to put into production by crowdfunding their product first. This way they can see which styles are more popular before they commit to production. Not only that they take an ethical approach to production too, crafted with respect for the environment and the people who make them and for every product purchased they plant a tree. Print and pattern is not going away anytime soon and with new advances in technology it looks like it’s here to stay. Patternbank would like to think this is the begins of a pattern take over!

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.
