I’m thrilled to share with you just a few of my recent patterns for children’s fashion prints. Hmm… I’ve noticed they all have either blue or green tones in them! Blue and green must be popular colours for childrenswear.
These were commissions for four different clients and they’re all based on animals, apart from one – the green and red design with camper-vans, Christmas trees and s’mores.
I do enjoy designing for fashion, especially for children, although I wouldn’t refuse designing for ladies and menswear! When I have a design in mind for fashion, I like to envisage how they’d appear on the garments, i.e. placement print for a top, pattern on a dress or leggings etc. I get a lot of inspiration from visiting fashion stores on the high street and on Pinterest. I’d love to produce prints for high end brands too. Perhaps one day!
Here are my latest children’s fashion prints. I’m going to share with you the actual artwork and how they look, once made up into garments.
Children’s fashion prints
I worked to directed colour palettes for these and they were produced in Illustrator, which I rarely use, but is great for flat colour and crisp lines. The festive camper-vans item also comes in adult sizes!
Very colourful yet bold colour palette. The client loves strong, bright colours.
The sea-life icons are a particular favourite for this client. She loves sharks and seahorses.
This pattern was inspired from the client’s holiday to Sri Lanka. I initially painted the animals and foliage, then finished off in Photoshop.
I’ve been working on more fashion prints and I really can’t wait to show you these! Stay tuned to find out ….
