We have the pleasure of introducing a new Belgian designer for our special Easter showcase. Her work has inspired us to fill the window with a myriad of Spring colours. Something to brighten this rather chilly March.
Francoise manipulates felt in to ribbony contours and upscaled neckpieces. Here she speaks about her inspiration for this colourful world;
Materials have the power of awakening imagination. My universe lies in the exploration of the dreams and stories woven into the fibres of textile materials. My work is deeply influenced by the world of theatre, and in particular by the costumes that I create for the stage – the juxtaposition of volumes, the interlocking of lights and shadows. Taking my playful experimentations to the smaller scale of jewellery I enjoy a different dimension of freedom and excitement. My jewellery, from bracelet to necklace, is made of tulle and felt, simple but colourful materials that I cut, thread, roll, fold and lace. The result is a dreamy landscape of chromatic contrasts and multiple volumes, which borrows shapes and sensations from the natural world and reinvents them through a colourful prism.
Hope you can come and see her creations soon.
