Alexandra's Fabulous Folds

Alexandra Verschueren is another 2009 graduate from Antwerp. Her graduate collection revolves around the medium of paper. She has folded and cut into the fabric and has printed onto the fabric so that it resembles paper. The collection has some very graphic influences including the concept of origami and architecture that play a large role in the intricate construction of the collection.
I am slightly obsessed with linear pencil drawings, so when I came across Verschueren’s sketches, for her graduate collection, I had to include them. They have a delicate geometric/linear feel that follows the same linear effect as the garments.
