I was previously aware of the designer, Cynthia Rowley but recently found her printed designs on the clothing website Asos.com, which led me to Rowley’s own website. This designer’s work was really useful to come across, as she has a swim collection that specialises in wetsuits and surf accessories. It was interesting to look at the different print designs, a lot of the pieces feature floral patterns, as well as varying sizes of patterns and seam details. From this research I noticed that this particular market is quite high-end and prices for these types of unique products are expensive.
If I had more time for this project I think I would like to develop some accessories such as surfboard bags which could be made from printed fabric or even have hand illustrations on. If I am unable to do this then I’d like to create some smaller samples showing my ideas.
