You can see more of her work on her website kristinreger.com While you’re there have a look at her Dye Dye Dye where she uses tie dye to great effect, creating some wonderful animal skin-like textures. Pattern is obviously her forte!

Patternbank just love this new collection by LA based designer Gregory Parkinson. The line Gregory will be part of a new range at Anthropologie called Made in Kind, a new platform for introducing designer collections at the chain. Parkinson’s signature tie-dye, mixed with print and eclectic colour sits perfectly in Anthropologies stores alongside a host of other talents such as Bryon LarsCharlotte TaylorRachel Rose and Tracey Reese. Parkinson is originally from the UK and has been making his mark in sunny California since 1996. His talent and love for textiles and print is clearly evident and this collection is sure to be a big hit.
