This mini collection was created as a final project for the Textile Academy. Traditional and digital methods and techniques were combined to create the garments. Laser cutting was used as a tool to create detail and quantity (the butterflies on the dress and top), while sublimation printing was used to be able to illustrate a self-made pattern on the tops. The laser-cut butterflies are all applied individually by hand embracing a more traditional craftsmanship approach. The project was concluded with a photoshoot of the garments.

During the course Fabricademy given by the Waag Society in Amsterdam, I had the opportunity to learn about different digital fabrication methods, the fabrication of bio-materials, bio-dyes, and electronic textiles. Below you can find images that will give an impression of my work.

After the general course, I started my individual project. This project started by exploring with the laser-cutter, sublimation printing, illustration and pattern making.
