The designs I have created are aimed at smart young professionals who are looking for classic ties with a modern twist to create a statement and innovate their appearance.
My project drew on the Optical and Morocco theme as starting points. It then developed into focusing on structure within modern architecture and nature, to create fluidity through colour in the geometric patterns. The designs are influenced by the V & A Islamic rooms, which assisted with the construction of mosaic tiles and also Bridget Riley to create fluid three-dimensional designs. My colour inspiration has been taken from my visual research and supported by the WGSN Kinship S/S 18 menswear trend as it combines lots of cultures. This has enabled a variety of designs, working coherently as a collection but also standing alone making an impact.
