I am a third year fashion design student at Manchester School of Art and specialise in designing womens’ wear, with inspiration from the military and the role in war that women have played.
Using hydrochromic ink supplied by SFXC, I have combined dazzle camouflage and my own camouflage design for jackets, which fold into bags that change colour when wet.
I am also working on accessories, incorporating colour changing qualities, to complement the ‘bag’ jackets.
I contacted SFXC after I had bought and used faulty hydrochromic ink supplied by another company that then failed to help me.
My relationship with SFXC has grown, from initially sending photographs to help advertise SFXC’s inks, to helping the company develop designs for a new brand.
Colour changing garments/products are an untapped aspect of art and design, which I hope to promote in collaboration with SFXC, whilst studying and after graduation.
Hydrochromic screen printing inks are available on the SFXC website.
