The Patternbank Team have been analysing the latest Resort 2017 collections and have put together the strongest print trends alongside designs from the Patternbank Online Textile Design Studio that we think perfectly complement each story. The Resort collections give us a sneak preview of what we can expect from the Spring/Summer 2017 Catwalk shows. Slightly more commercially focused, but nevertheless important in their instant availability and timely showings, even the men are getting in on the act showcasing men’s pre-collections alongside womenswear. Watch out for Part 2 later this week.

Today we are featuring the work of textile print designer Kerrie Cauvin in our ongoing series highlighting the fantastic designers here on the Patternbank Textile Print Design Studio. Based in Sydney, Australia Kerrie has been designing for the apparel industry for over 10 years. Inspired by vintage textiles, nature, amazing colour and digital possibilities, Kerrie loves to explore all forms of media, mixing her distinctive hand drawn quality with digital techniques.

“I love to experiment using hand created artwork, sketches, photos, watercolour/painterly textures mixing them with Photoshop, iPad apps and Illustrator. This allows a very loose and playful approach, embracing “mistakes” and how they produce amazing and interesting shapes and design. On the other hand, I also love vintage florals and quirky conversationals which require a more structured design approach, so my work is really a varied mix of these 2 ways of working. Colour is a big inspiration and I find great examples through nature, catwalks, art and photography.”

Patternbank particularly love her use of colour and bold pattern-making which suits a varied marketplace from women’s fashion, swimwear, stationery and kidswear. See more of her profile page here. The featured design above is Dark Forest and is available exclusively on the Patternbank Studio as are all the designs shown here.

 

Kerrie also has many designs in Patternbank Premium our exclusive area for key buyers in the fashion industry. Patternbank Premium offers one-off bespoke designs (once a design is sold it is instantly removed from the site), this section of the site is a members-only area where you need to apply for access.

Sebastian Vallejo may now live in Bushwick, Brooklyn, NY but his homeland of Puerto Rico in the Caribbean is where he finds inspiration for his paintings, in particular the nature, colours and light that can be found there. Patternbank love the way he incorporates different materials into his work such as glitter, textiles and plastic bags creating layers of texture and pattern with neon spray paints, truly tropical! Check out more of Vallejo’s paintings on his website sebastianvallejo.com
