I have decided to research into textile designers because I don’t really know many, which I will need to research to inform my work even more. Craig Fellows is the first one that jumped out at me. He is an award-winning textile print designer with a passion for colour and illustration. He likes to combine his fine art talents with his love of fashion and textiles, using traditional, contemporary and digital printing techniques. The beautiful illustrations that he draws are turned into amazing fashion pieces. Each of these are designed and made in locally so that they are all unique and cannot be found on the high street.
Fellows graduated with a First Class Honours Degree in Fashion from the University of Northampton in 2008. During his studies he regularly exhibited his work which was chosen to represent the University in various competitions.
Here are some photos of Craig Fellows current and archive collection…
He also studies colour by looking at objects and recording what colours he can see.
