- Deep TropicsCombining new processes with hand crafted woven structures; the designs in this collection demonstrate a confidence to explore new ways of working and experimenting with bold colours, textures and materials to create a unique and versatile style of work. Inspired by the rich colours and abstract patterns present in nature, this project explores tropical environments through drawing and development. Designed for Autumn/Winter, the collection is made up of the dark tones and bright highlights present within tropical foliage. Considering scale, composition and drape, a range of fabric weights and surface finishes are explored. Working with hand-dyed natural fibres such as silk and wool, the luxurious fabrics produced are marketed for couture Menswear shirting and jacketing design.

- Iridescent Insects The visual research and design development of this project is based around the theme of bugs and insects, focusing mainly on iridescent colours and contrasting structural surfaces. The dense, hard outer shell of an insect juxtaposed next to the delicate and transparent nature of their wings provides a variety of surface qualities and colour to work from. Their legs, antennae and eyes create strong geometric shapes which can be reproduced into repeat designs and woven structures. These designs are copyright of Eve Gibson 2017. All rights reserved.
