Party paper

Last week of MATS, and the market was party paper.

The brief was to take inspiration from Bavarian and Ukrainian folk art and create different designs for a paper plate and napkin. Last time I did MATS I created placement prints but this time I wanted to make patterns, and in particular a floral, so it was the embroidery and decorated eggs (pysanka) that I found most interesting. 

It all fell into place quite easily, but because I always like to try and create a repeat, there was a lot of to-ing and fro-ing to get the leaves on the floral to flow properly.

This was my mood board for the project. The dress is from Dolce & Gabbana'ss/s 2016 collection.
