A journey that begins with first-hand observation and ends with complex, three-dimensional pieces, Halima’s AS and A2 Textile projects are superb exemplars for others: some of the best Textile sketchbooks that I have seen.
My inspiration for this collection derived from the archetypes of Carl Jung. In particular: the shadow, the persona and the self. Real pressed flowers are encapsulated in contrasting pleated plastic with the same flowers printed and embroidered onto silks. Each garment forms part of a narrative that represents the human evolution of consciousness that altogether create a glamorous, modern yet functional collection.
