Big Knits!!

Posted by Zoe Fletcher on Tuesday, September 22, 2009

 Huge hand-knotted nylon net by Janet Echelman, I love the enormity and space that this piece twists through showing the movement and drape created by such a big knotted gap!!

Phat Knits, designed by Bauke Knottnerus, I would love to just lie on one of these and laze the day away...they look like works of art but but also draw the visitor into their comforting 'homely' feeling that makes you want to touch them!!

Phat Knits, designed by Bauke Knottnerus again, I love the colours of these huge tubes like rainbow laces mmm...



Zoe Grace Fletcher Currently undertaking a PhD at Manchester Metropolitan University within the MIRIAD post-graduate department, I am beginning a practice based academic journey into British wool fibres and new technologies within knitwear design. Graduating with Distinction from a Masters in Fashion and the Environment at London College of Fashion, specialising in hand-knitting and the British Wool Industry, I have worked on a number of knitwear collections (personal and external companies), whilst freelancing and researching for a number of exciting projects. My work revolves around the idea of sustainable fashion from a knitted perspective and the different ways to achieve this incorporating the ideas of slow fashion into mainstream society. I love knitting. And wool. And double sided sticky tape.
