Gypsy Thief swing tags for my hand dyed, screen printed garments.
What a guy - such style….
A quick shout out to my very talented friend, Miss Rosie Goonan, who has been helping me with honours project by sewing some garments for me out of fabrics I have been screen printing and dyeing with botanical dyes. I would be lost without her!
You can find more of her gorgeous work here
Back detail of a shirt made by Rosie using my fabric collection. This is a sleeveless blouse made from silk habutae, a vintage collar i found and wooden buttons. All part of the Gypsy Thief 2012 collection.
Here are a couple of studio shots of my work taken by the lovely Yasmin Masri. You can find more of her work here.
Here is a birds nest I found, an owl drawing and a camisole made from tissue silk dyed with prunis leaves and a lace peter pan collar. All part of the Gypsy Thief 2012 collection.
The drawing in the middle of this image is of the night sky. I used wax and sign painting tape as a resist, and then covered the paper with black ink, metallic ink and tea staining. The skirt is hand made from silk satin dyed with bark and iron mordant and screen printed with my feather repeat pattern. All part of the Gypsy Thief 2012 collection.
The drawing in this image is inspired by the folk tale of Freya and her feather cloak. I used sepia ink, watercolours and tea staining. The dress is made from silk velvet dyed with mulberries, linen and a vintage lace collar. All part of the Gypsy Thief 2012 collection.
This is an observational drawing I did of feathers, using black ink and a mapping pen. The singlet is part of a series and has been naturally dyed with black rice and iron mordant. The bird has been turned into a screen print design from one of my drawings, and has been printed with pigment. All part of the Gypsy Thief 2012 collection.
