ANIMAL INSPIRED PATTERN REPEAT
Inspired by the majestic jellyfish and its ocean environment, I created textile patterns after brainstorming their many interesting characteristics. When I think of jellyfish, I think of their luminescent, flowing, and colorful qualities. I took these elements and I created three pattern repeats. The first is inspired by jellyfish on the ocean floor, the second by illuminated jellyfish in the dark abyss, and the third is inspired by washed up jellyfish on the beach. These patterns were incorporated into a sleeveless crop top with a peplum and shorts with a peplum like trim along the hem. I have also presented other possible product applications for these patterns including a skirt, leggings, and dress.
