The Patternbank team were at the preview day of the Victoria & Albert’s new exhibition Fashioned from Nature last week. A great new exhibition that looks at how nature has influenced fashion design, textiles, manufacturing and pattern, throughout the last 400 years. Set over 2 floors, the first floor looks back in history and explores the evolution of how nature has impacted fashion. The upper floor is more of a present-day look at how new designers have used nature in the design process. It also showcases the environmental aspects of how designers now are looking at sustainability within fashion. We also picked up the book that accompanies the exhibition which is also worth a purchase here.

Patternbank and The London Textile Fair recently teamed up at London’s the biggest textile event at the Business Design Centre in Islington. The fair was a huge success and reached capacity, with 370 exhibitors taking part at this seasons event. TLTF was once again split into three industry sections(Textiles, Print Studios, Accessories & Trim) making it incredibly easy for buyers to meet and view exhibitors new seasons collections.

Once again Patternbank were pleased to partner with the fair to curate and build the inspirational trend forum areas for Autumn/Winter 16/17.

Hand drawn using metallic inks on velvety black paper, Mary O’Malley captures complex detail and creates a new world of hybrid chandeliers, curious bouquets, dense gardens and imagined landscapes. They evoke images of intricate lace patterns for us and have an almost embroidered quality to them. Her inspiration comes from botanical illustration, nature, decorative art, architecture and textile patterns which is truly evident in these beautiful decorative drawings. To see more of her work
