Jellyfish dress for Karla Cola

 

 

I love to draw animals & sea-life creatures, which is something about me which will stand out, if you follow my work on social media.

I’ve recently collaborated with independent fashion brand, Karla Cola, whom I’ve designed for previously; for instance, my brightly coloured ‘Bug Off’ design, back in October 2019. This new collaboration is a Jellyfish design, which is available to buy from Sunday 23rd February 8pm (Adelaide time). I love that Karla asks her audience to suggest names for each new design. The name given to this one is, ‘You Wish Jellyfish’.

The initial pattern had a blue background with orange and deep pink jellyfish. It was very busy with the jellyfish touching one another.

 

 

Karla had already a colour palette in mind, so I only had to make a few subtle changes. The background was to have a soft, watery texture effect and the turquoise blue to change to a light(ish) coral colour.

I also spread out the jellyfish, so they weren’t as close. They ended up being bigger in scale too, which you’ll be to see from the below photos.

What I adore about this print, is the simplicity in repeat, in contrast to the details within each jellyfish. The colours also look great and I love how the yellow ‘pops out’ here and there.

It was a fun design to work on and I have to say, the dress looks great on Karla (owner of Karla Cola). Don’t you just love the accessories?!
