100% DIY

DIYcouture has joined forces with The People's Print and BeFab Be Creative to conduct an experiment into fully bespoke, DIY fashion. We put forward an open challenge: "Design a fabric that explores a bold spirit of adventure."

We asked novice designers to boldly step forth into the unkown and use their imaginations to create dreamscapes in collage form. A simple, inspirational tutorial by The People's Print explained how to turn a collage into repeat pattern.

We were overwhelmed by the quality and quantity of designs submitted.
