What I liked about Kate’s work at the show, (BA in Textiles), was how she used the knitted fabrics to upholster the furniture. Very unusual, very nice colors and patterns and with a very good result!!

A bit about her…The inspiration for my final project was drawn from the palaces of Europe and Russia, folk art and antiquities. Modern colours were infused with older ones to create an eclectic and contemporary look. Fabrics are for interiors and fashion, and products encompass an entire lifestyle concept.

…The difficulty with knitted fabric is that you cannot cut it because it will unravel very quickly, unlike woven fabric. This means that the pieces of fabric used to upholster something have to be made in exactly the right shape so that it fits the item perfectly.

    I was bowled over by the designs displayed (hanging from door knobs) on the wall. Definitely one to watch…
