Harriet Bourne

My collections are a combination of hand and machine knitting, aimed at high end womenswear for Spring/ Summer 2016. Inspiration was taken from pottery, to create structural designs with repeated patterns. Throughout the year I have been very focussed on bight and vibrant colours. The colours developed during my project resulted in bold, energetic pieces. Instead of creating conventional colour harmonies there is vibrant imbalance, informed by colour theory.

The collections combine fine, structured 12 gauge machine knit with chunky hand knitting. Varying textures and structures within a piece has created visually stimulating, textural knitwear. There is a strong focus on high quality natural yarns within my collections, aided by knowledge gained in my year in industry.
