Reviewing Textile Designs with Colleen Quen and Rick Lee - Cultural Tech-Fusion Fabrics

Cultural Tech-Fusion Fabrics

 
 
This morning I had a meeting with Colleen Quen and Rick Lee to review textile designs, color, fabrics and scale. We also decided on a name for the installation: Suface & Shape: Reflections on Silicon Valley. The museum wished to modify the name to fit the grant application, so the final name is:
TECHstyle SoftWEAR: Surface & Shape

Below: I was amazed by how quickly Colleen honed in on the patterns she was draw to for each garment. She will be making one for a woman and one for a man. She selected three fabrics for each.

Below are the revisions to colors and scaling of designs after Colleen's feedback. The top row is for the woman's garment. The bottom textile row is for the man's garment. I ordered silk test swatches from Kent State University's School of Fashion's  TechStyleLAB and cotton lawn swatches from Spoonflower .

Rick shared some great concept sketches for the installation. I am so very excited for this collaboration!
