Photographs: Jon Duenas OIl Paintings: Pakaylarae Biehn The garments in this collection are inspired by the patterns that can be found in nature. The prints used for the textiles were created using spoonflower.com. These prints were created from digital photos that I have taken. The photos were then reflected across the horizontal or vertical axis to create a kaleidoscope like pattern. Complex prints combined with simple silhouettes create a sense of balance within this collection. The looks are designed to be versatile and are able to be mixed and matched to create a variety of outfit options. Select pieces from this collection are designed to be unisex, which further emphasizes the versatility of the collection. An additional objective of this collection was to have zero waste. All scrap material was collected and saved to use for future projects.
