Keiko_Nishiyama_London_college_Fashion_Prints_Garden_SS14_1

Patternbank are loving Keiko Nishiyama’s picturesque garden inspired collection from her MA graduate show. Keiko Nishiyama studied BA Fashion and performance in Tokyo. after working for an assistant designer, completed an MA in fashion design at London College of Fashion. The idea of printing ‘hybrid imported plants’ in which new flowers were mixed to create an atmosphere of mystery. All the draft prints are hand-drawn creating the illusion of distance to rearrange and reposition the flowers.

“Anthology of Art”
This collection born out of English picturesque garden. The garden would compare anthology of art. In 18th century,Despite the British devotion to naturalism, features such as ruins and follies hybrid flowers became gradually more and more ornamental. The idea that the inclusion of artificial elements in fact contributes to the concept of a ‘naturalistic garden’
