The following designers were selected for a place on the Texprint programme to exhibit at Indigo in Paris, September 2013
Metamorphosis and transformation influence my work, exploring the interconnections of nature, changing species characteristics and the ever-evolving state of the natural world.
My collection of richly embellished couture fabrics explores experimental techniques and hand finished detailing, and is inspired by the shape, texture and expressive nature of birds.
Visually exciting and original, I strive to subvert the view of menswear print design drawing inspiration from family members, childhood memories and British culture.
By taking inspiration from and modernising traditional lacework techniques, and playing with Marie Antoinette decadence and outer space influences, I have created a uniquely crafted and modern aesthetic.
Inspired by Savile Row opulence juxtaposed with crowd protest photography and group animal migration, I explore traditional/luxe yarns alongside less conventional materials such as horsehair and plastic.
Inspired by objects and photos collected from markets and car boot sales, my work plays with texture, colour and materials to create a hand made, crafted nostalgic style.
My collection of passementerie combines luxurious and unusual materials with a contemporary colour palette, demonstrating a quirky and individual approach to an age-old craft.
My work aims to revive traditional Welsh weave in an original way, fusing a contemporary colour palette with urban patterning and championing the rich and luxurious qualities of natural fibres.
Florence Angelica Colson
My love of highly detailed drawing and painting with gouache, translated through digital manipulation, informs my boldly coloured, intricate and ornamental collections.
Gillian Louise Murphy
Inspired by the slow fashion movement, my simple and timeless knitted fabrics focus on colour and subtle detail, in some cases using a plating technique to create reversible fabrics.
Inspired by sources from architecture to natural forms, my most recent collection combines different print processes.and includes geometrics inspired by the Art Deco movement.
Heather JY Cheung
My collection of intricately drawn hybrid animal illustrations was inspired by a visit to India, the gods Ganesh and Hanuman; also the wonders of mutation and preserved creatures.
Inspired by a visit to Koniakow, a Polish village famed for crochet, and the narratives of Bruno Schulz, 20thc prose stylist, my illustrations combine colour and pattern to bring the fantastical to life.
By juxtaposing colour, pattern and stitch techniques my brand Winston updates and makes wearable classic twin-set knits, offering something fresh and innovative for today’s discerning consumer.
Using photography distances me from my subject, allowing others to see the world through my eyes. Inspired by living in an unfamiliar land, my work captures a mood of Isolation, alienation and acceptance.
Feminine, yet contemporary and quirky with a quintessentially British feel; I take inspiration from folk traditions, classic designers and artists, but always with an eye to popular culture.
Inspired by the folding construction of tents and by engineered pleating techniques, my work explores the possibilities of combining graphic elements with complex three-dimensional structures.
Triangle shapes, layering, two-dimensional cuts inspired by ethnic clothing, especially those of south China. Varying scales of floral/architectural pattern build to create three-dimensional designs.

My interests include sport horses, animals and all disciplines of the decorative arts which inspire my drawing and design work. I especially enjoy working collaboratively on bespoke projects.
My textile designs draw upon the imagery of destruction and natural disasters, creating a raw, dark and melancholic beauty that explores control and juxtaposes chaos and regularity.
Inspired by my aerial photographs of Iceland my work reflects the textures, structures and patterns of the landscape. To achieve this I have used a variety of yarns and plating techniques to manipulate the construction of the knit.
Observational drawing informs much of my work. I feel this way of recording the new and exciting places I visit is much more dynamic than simply taking a photograph.
Signe Rand Ebbesen
Woven fabrics that change character with the angle of light, movement and handle; unpredictable structures, colour shifts and semi-translucent layering.
My research into how living organisms use pattern, colour and texture in order to survive, protect and attract has inspired a vibrant textural collection designed for luxury interior accessories.
