Hand Painted Fabrics...
Navina from Cambridge has made a really lovely collection based on Ceramics.... Her collection is based on beautifully hand-painted fabrics which are then made into simple, almost architectural shapes... well that was the idea anyway but it's always a bit of a "moment of truth" to see how the fabrics actually work. There are a few slight issues to sort out but overall I think they work really well...
she's used bleach, gold paint and black dye to create this dress:

...and fabric paints mixed with water to create the "watercolour" effect on this one:

I think they look great.
