I recently teamed up with two mega-talented designers and a forward thinking Chinese mill to create a collection of fabrics being launched in Shanghai in less than a week! What an experience! Mike Farrell and Aaron Sizemore showed me a whole new world…and in some regards we created a whole new world with our company called Factory
Some design highlights in this collection for me….here’s a design I did with a soap bottle, some acrylic paint and a blind contour drawing of Warhol’s flowers.
Here’s one pulled from a penguin painting I did called Rookery.
This one was loosely based on my love of bowties and a brise de soliel I saw.
Here’s one called dogwoods, a beautiful flower drawing with some heavy lines
My line drawings really came in handy during this venture, turning some traditional fabric looks into something new and fresh in the market.
Like this variation on a greek key called Locksmith
My contour lines make really great fabrics! Look at this truck pattern
And this project is far from over. We’ll be showing in Frankfurt in January. Stay tuned for more creative stuff from this exciting and new company.
