The ‘Beauty Unearthed’ collection was inspired by insects. It's subtle, yet with a quirky edge
Vivienne's hand-drawn spider, scorpion and insect designs allowed her to get ‘up close and personal’ with the finished textiles and accessories.
She experimented with natural inky, smoky, dark colours and three dimensional structures which in turn captured the movement of the insects and breathed life into the work. Materials including fine silk, leather and perspex were utilised. She incorporated techniques such as surface-print, hand-cutting and laser-cutting to produce the final pieces.
