About me
I am a skilled print designer living in London and a Textiles Design graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design and recently, Chelsea College of Arts, University of the Arts, London. I specialize in color, print and textiles with an interest in trend research. I have worked internationally at design houses in London, New York and Mumbai designing products and developing fabrics and prints for womenswear. I have proven ability to produce a collection of prints in line with the season trends and color palettes. I maintain consistent brand awareness with an eye for form, detail and picking up trends / patterns. I work well under pressure and am a team player with a can do attitude. I am currently looking for opportunities within trend research & forecasting. Please feel free to contact me with any creative enquiries. website: www.mallika-dalal.com

  • Immersed: Marks of the Deep | MA Final Collection Fabrics
    Immersed: Marks of the Deep | MA Final Collection FabricsPrinted fabrics for unisex artist jackets. These printed & embroidered fabrics reference an account of a journey 3000ft deep into the sea and the formation and fragmentation of lines, shapes and colors at different depths. The prints are inspired by the linear marks of waves and water movement at the ocean's surface, the strange foliage encountered while moving deeper, the whirlwind stream of detritus around 1000 feet in, and the gradual loss of natural light and emergence of electric light; the flashes, colors and sounds that punctuate the blackness that makes up the vast majority of our waters. These abstracted prints originate from ink drawings and paintings and were later digitally printed on medium-weight outerwear fabrics and embroidered.
  • Ink Garden Florals SS15
    Ink Garden Florals SS15A collection of floral fashion prints for SS15 featuring clean garden florals in soft pastels, whites and blacks. Hand drawn.
