I have been taking a ‘garment audit’ – taking stock of the dresses etc that I have collected, ready for printing on, for the on-going Locus of the Dress project. Each of the garments have individual qualities for expression – clues and signals for the inside or outside. Hence some will be used turned and printed inside out whilst others will be printed the ‘correct way’.
I am really excited to get printing on them and to build on the large body of samples and whole garment prints I have amassed over the last year or so.
All the garments are 100% polyester as the dye sub technique i am using, uses dispersal dyes, only effective on man-made fibre.
