Printed textile designer Jasmin Marie, focuses on exploring the relationship between textiles, fashion and photography.
Having initially studied BA (Hons) Photography for Fashion before her MA in Textile Design Innovation, Jasmin understands the collaboration needed between different crafts in order for innovative designs to be created. The work Jasmin produces embraces this partnership, with photography as the central feature within her textile prints.
Her final collection takes inspiration from the 35mm analogue photographs she took, documenting her travels in Japan during October 2015, after being award a Paul Smith Scholarship as part of her MA study.
Using both her photographic and printed textile knowledge, Jasmin has created a collection of work that emphasises the fragility and preciousness of her memories. It is through manipulating her photographic images using the technique of cellulose printing, that she continues to explore the fact that her memories over time will become lost, distorted, and imperfect. By rebuilding these diffused images through the use of screen and digital printing along with embroidery, Jasmin reimagines and reconstructs the journeys that she once vividly recalled of her time in Japan.
