School of Design Textile Design

Thomas Kinghorn

This year my work has focused on nature and the city. I’ve taken inspiration from the way we remember places, as slowly merging jumbles of images and colours, constantly affected and reframed depending on our current moods, experiences, even weather. Driven by an interest in sustainability and re-usable fashion, I have created a range of one off textiles that embrace the defects and irregularities of the second hand materials they are made from. I hope to demonstrate that by re-assessing the value of discarded materials, we can waste less, and allow garments to live on as their purpose and use changes. Below is a small selection of of work from the project
