ENGINEERED SCREEN PRINT
This research practice investigates how textile print can be used to supersede tailoring to complement form in womenswear. The work promotes immediate interaction with materials and process over secondary interaction through digital interface, using intricately patterned screen prints to achieve complex tonal effects using only one screen and one printed colour. Draft prints were applied at toile stage and appraised on the body to inform the distribution of surface pattern. Subtle changes within the designs were used to build up areas of depth and shade, resulting in innovative, garment-specific, engineered screen prints.
