started cleaning up my stuff and found these all these quite big scraps of fabric; basketball mesh, jersey, leather acetate, all that, so just experimented using them together for fun and a semi procrastinating because ceebs cleaning. was aiming for a sportsluxe-ish vibe, but i feel the elasticated gathered straps at the back really kill that, so probs would change that bit.. but anyway this is just what i played around with!

some cheeki avocados i painted on to jersey offcut, then embroidered and beaded over them. the back is just nude mesh leftover from a uni project aswell, and like comes over the shoulders and in at the sides a bit. fits a size 6 or small 8, with an a-cup otherwise it starts to ride up haha, just because this was an experiment sample so i just used little bits of what i already had.

v delayed... i was so attached to this idea of pineapples and twosies, but then i thought it would be fun to join it as a jumpsuit and have more colour, and tbh none of the fabric that was around was really appealing, so i was just like yolo paint the pineapples on myself. I did a trial sample to test, so like with acrylics and textile solution stuff and then just some varying size and placement.
***** ALSO will be selling one-off designs available very soon on bigcartel, check out my store here , got exciting things planned,and follow on instagram aswell - @meloxclothing

this compilation of mesh, french knitting, hand knitting, jersey, beading, embroidery basically comes from the brief of using knits, so i also knew i wanted to use beading and embroidery and all that, so i researching and looking into clustering, and that led to stuff like dot paintings etc, which led to the eremophobia, my concept. it's the fear of loneliness,and fear of being alone, which is so relatable to everyone at some point in time, and i just felt the clustering and wrapping created a visual communication to that idea
