Biomimicry is the study of models, systems and elements of nature for the purpose of solving design problems. I have been greatly inspired by the shapes, colours and textures that are found all throughout nature. A main inspiration for my collection have been the surfaces and textures found on butterfly and moth taxidermy. I have a great interest in using textiles differently to their original purpose. Creating an interesting textile/surface was one of my main goals for this collection and colour has always played a massive part in my design process.
