Abstract: This submission represents an original collection of textile designs derived through textile experimentation. The process is linked to the biennial focus upon the “Indigo” exhibition. The “Diversity Studio” conducts market analysis, creative development, product testing and materials investigation that leads to a new presentation every six months. The work described in this submission delivers:1) Current and emerging trends in Fashion and Textiles.2) Reports on ‘social, technical, economic and political’ issues (STEP factors) that impact upon current practice in fashion and textiles. 3) Original design to inform future markets. The work demands research and dialogue with industry professionals such as the Creative Director and Editor of “Textile View,” Marie Christine Vianney. While the process includes factor analysis and original interviews and research; it is instinctive vision that defines the prediction. Dillon is the primary investigator of new trends and conceptual thinking for the partnership and sets the parameters for the new collection in consultation with the other members.
