Wes Anderson is an American film director who is able to hide twisted subject matters behind a pastel, romantic, and subtle visual style. What makes Wes Anderson's movies so unique is that they are able to transport the audience into a quirky, whimsical and at the same time nostalgic environment. Fantasy is welcomed and the crazy is often normal.
Anderson's aesthetic and scenes are very balanced and symmetrical. I opted to do the opposite by creating a collection that does not feel balanced, or clean. I am inserting chaos on his balance and organized symmetry. This chaotic atmosphere is created by combining different prints, shapes, textures, and colors. Materials used are tulle, yarn, thread, lace, and woven fabrics. I chose materials that are not expected to use together to form a clash between them.
These illustrations were made through collaging photographs of the Weaving Sustainability project and part of its creative process.
This illustrations are based and inspired on the Jordan project. The goal for the illustrated collection was to create contemporary looks inspired in Jordan 1800s. Because at the time Jordan was part of the Ottoman Empire, I was mainly inspired by the palace's walls and prints.
