Sophie is a designer of printed textiles for fashion, she creates digital patterns and prints through playful imagery and colours. This collection is inspired by Italian café culture and film maker Wes Anderson’s Bar Luce in Milan.
Sophie has combined inspirational scenes of café life with Still Lifes you would typically find in a traditional Italian café. She has explored this through primary research, sketching with continuous fine line and painting with gouache to bring her design signature to her patterns.
Her aim for this collection was to showcase a variety of quirky printed fashion designs and use her own approach to celebrate the traditional Italian café life, using the Bar Luce colour palette.
Sophie believes that this project has cemented her confidence as a printed textile designer through testing her digital abilities, particularly in recent times. This will help her greatly going into the design world and seeking employment.
