Paradise Mill

Inspired by the historic silk mill museum in Macclesfield, Cheshire, North England.
This collection of shirt dresses re-imagines the museum’s fantastic collections for the 21st century, juxtaposing intriguing structural forms and shapes against the delicate silk of the dresses. They highlight in their prints and texture the rich heritage and settings of Paradise Mill and form beautiful, almost abstract patterns at the same time. The visual detailing displays machinery such as spinning and weaving methods and also uses photography taken of samples from historical fabric archives on site.
