Graduate Profile, Textile Design – Kate Lynch

28 Jun

Recently, fashion has seen designers such as Mary Katrantzou making colourful and eclectic prints their signature style. Printed textiles are flavour of the year in the fashion world – to the extent that at the recent Graduate Fashion Week, Julien Macdonald voiced his opinion that the print market is currently ‘saturated’. But many young designers are experimenting with digital, trying out new software and pushing the boundaries of what can be achieved when you move away from traditional methods. Kate Lynch has just graduated with a wholly digital collection. Kate will be selling her work at New Designers and Indigo.
