Jasmine Farmer’s collection explores the sensory elements of knitwear through creating intricate knit structures that reflect that of Braille. Jasmine’s collection is very textile driven and she brings life to the garments through powerful colours that stimulate the senses. Her collection focuses on organic fabrics that create interaction when worn through movement and tactility.
Jasmine begins her design process by exploring yarns through development of stitch on both domestic and industrial knitwear machinery. She works directly with her sketchbook to develop fabric inspired from the abstract patterns she creates. Her initial inspiration stemmed from the idea that certain textures and colours can evoke feelings of nostalgia - and bring us back to a happy memory, maybe of our childhood where we played with our grandmother’s pearl necklace - these textures develop into knitted stitch repeats with three dimensional texture.
