Evie Cox

Graduate Knitwear DesignerWinchester, United Kingdom
About me
Evie is a recent graduate from Winchester School of Art, having studied Fashion and Textile Design: Knitwear. Her design work has been highly influenced by minimalist art works, and is very commercial. She favours high quality yarns and materials, having visited Spinexpo (Paris) twice in the past year, to source high quality yarns, and secured a yarn sponsorship from Winning Textile Co. for her Pre-Collection and Graduate Collection. Along side her studies, Evie has been dedicated to her various job roles throughout her degree. Over this time, Evie has gained an insight to many areas of the fashion industry, with experience in fashion buying, communications with fashion agencies and showrooms, merchandising stock, social media marketing content creating and strategy, and assisting customers in a sales environment. Evie's degree and previous job roles have provided her with a great range of experience and skills, that would enable her to be successful in many areas of the design industry.
Projects
  • Serial Repetition - Graduate Collection, 2018
    Serial Repetition - Graduate Collection, 2018Evie's graduate collection has been inspired by the simple, massive shapes and colour blocking characteristics of minimalist art. In minimalist works, the interest lies within the shape and form and surface of the work, and often results in rigorous reductivism and non-emotive design. Work is stripped to it’s core, and is often visually simplified, even if the construction and composition is incredibly complex, with the consideration of texture, colour and space created. Extreme simplicity often originates with simple lines and geometric shapes used in repetition. Serial repetition and composition is key to the collection; serial imagery, often multiple rows and columns, form an abstract grid. Evie places high importance on using high quality yarns, and attended Spinexpo Paris in July 2017 and February 2018 in the search of high quality yarns. During her final year at University, Evie made connections with those she met at Spinexpo, and she was awarded a yarn sponsorship from Winning Textile Co.
