Patternbank recently teamed up with Leeds Arts University to run a Autumn/Winter 2022 Live brief for the BA (Hons) Textile Design students. Students had the choice of three Fall21/22 Patternbank trends: Monochrome Blow Ups, Abstract Layers & Modern Art Deco. A big congratulation to the winners. The past year has been a challenging time, so it was so positive to see the creative way the students tackled the brief. All took on the commercial understanding and worked hard on customer research, trends, colour palette work, initial design developments and the important final presentations. Great work!

Aswani Bal

In 3 words describe your pattern design style?
Feminine, pretty, painterly

What is your work & design process? 
I always have the moodboard in my head and start with photoshop and make around 5 designs in a stretch or until I’m satified. And this mood board depends on the latest trends or it will be just an image or something that had inspired me.  At times I love hand-painting loose florals and textures and how they turn out totally depends on my mood.

Where do you find your design inspiration?

Sometimes a tiny flower or a simple leaf inspires my design while mostly I follow trend forecasts for making fashion prints. I even get inspired by designs I’d made earlier. I also like to research on traditional crafts and arts by different artists from all around the world and use it for my prints. I also try to learn techniques and effects  from other artists and designers.

What advice would you give to new designers?
Learn and explore with all the opportunities and time you have.


Veneta Danailova

In 3 words describe your pattern design style?
Trendy, vibrant and diverse

What is your work & design process? 
My work process begins with getting acquainted in advance with the latest fashion trends.I sketch, draw and develop my ideas. Finally, I finish with the appropriate colors for the season.

Where do you find your design inspiration?
I find design inspiration from various sources – from nature and my travels, from art and listening to music.I am inspired by plants and flowers by trying to reproduce them.

What advice would you give to new designers?
I would recommend new designers to do what they love and not be afraid to experiment.

Irregular Geos : Moving away from clean graphic lines, geometric pattern takes on a loose hand made quality. This Spring/Summer 22 geometric trend takes a softer hand made feel with hastily sketched linear doodles, boldly brushed paint marks and and loose inky checks. #patternbank #trendflash #trends #print #pattern

Oana’s Prints

In 3 words describe your pattern design style?
Eclectic, colorful, and textural. 
I enjoy combining different themes, styles, and techniques in one pattern.

What is your work & design process? 
I create my patterns by mixing traditional paintings and drawings with digital illustrations. I often start with a watercolor painting which I scan and edit digitally, or I start with digital elements to which I later add hand-painted textures. I also enjoy experimenting with traditional textile printing techniques, such as tie-dye, shibori, block-printing, or marbling art.

Where do you find your design inspiration?
I love traveling to discover ethnic and modern art from various cultures. Art museums, galleries, along fashion shows are my favorite inspiration sources.

What advice would you give to new designers?
Keep on creating what you love. Try anything and everything.

Sarah Jane Woodward

In 3 words describe your pattern design style?
Colourful, modern and fun.

What is your work & design process? 
I like to use watercolour inks and  fine liners for detail. I also like to use floral photography in some of my designs.  I then put everything together in Photoshop.

Where do you find your design inspiration?
I closely follow catwalk trends and fashion reports. I am often inspired by fresh flowers, nature and different textures. I like to be experimental with my paint and media.

What advice would you give to new designers?
Experiment as much as you can with media and technique. You don’t need to have all your ideas planned out before hand.
