SIMPLY MR BYARS GRADUATE COLLECTION


My graduate collection is inspired by the artist James Lee Byars and one of his greatest pieces The Golden Tower. The tower is exhibited in Venice today which is the city James spent most of his time in where he created such beautiful art pieces not only structural but live art. The tower was so beautiful that I began to explore with the idea of how something so simple and linear could make such a big impact on many as they walk by. The tiny gold flakes that make up this tower is what makes it so spectacular. So could a simple linear stripe embedded in fabric create a similar attitude. Through out the development of this collection I began to explore and play around with creating my own structure with the silhouettes such as arched wings. Although I loved the playfulness of this structure I didn’t want the silhouette to take completely over this collection rather than the print technique. I stuck to clean cuts in most of my garments. To make this even more interesting how could I create an even greater reaction? I then thought of the perfect juxtaposition which is polka dots. It’s another simple technique but when I put them side by side with the stripes the collection became even more alive then I could imagine. The linear form juxtaposing the different scale of spots just made the silhouettes even more exciting and completing the mood of my collection.

The Beach Dancers is a collection based on the summer loving girl sat in her bedroom who dreams to live by the beach. She isn’t afraid to get her body covered in sand and her hair soaked in the salty water. She loves bold prints and making a statement in whatever she wears. Loose and fun bohemian silhouettes are a must to represent her crazy adventures, hopes and dreams.
