Monday Morning Inspiration

It seems I am a little late in finding out about Marit Fujiwara. Hey, better late than never. I came across a picture on Pinterest, was intrigued and went searching for more. What I found took my breath away.
You may already know about this incredible designer/artist, but if you don't, get ready to be inspired or at least, blown away.
Taken from www.patternbank.com, "Marit Fujiwara graduated from Chelsea College of Art and Design in 2009 and then set up her company Tanana Takite. Specialising in mixed media and constructive textiles, she creates some really unique pieces that push the boundaries between Art, Craft and Design. She adopts an experimental attitude towards materials, combining traditional printing techniques with embroidery and fabric manipulation. As a keen illustrator, she bases her work on drawing, bringing fluidity to her garments and projecting the idea of movement and time."
What's amazing to me is that she is able to layer so many fabrics and yet her pieces still seem to have such a lightness to them.

In this photo you can see the stitching alongside the fabrics.
The skirt almost looks to be plastic.

In the photo below you can see just how many layers there are.


The fabrics seem to take on the look of the skeleton.

The fabrics and the stitching blend together in what seems to be an effortless manor.

The pictures below are from a collection called "Hair."

Wishing you all an incredible week.
