Pattern, Textiles & Fashion on Film

Quentin Jones for Kenzo Pre-Fall 2012

 

You may have noticed that we embrace animation and film narratives as integral to contemporary textiles practice. This is because textiles manifest time and story-telling in their very DNA. Even digital code is textiles inasmuchas each pixel echoes the needlepoint stitch or punchcard hole in order to make the image whole.

Last year we showcased our resident textile animator Tania Grace Knuckey’s witty, subtle and evocative textile animations at our Slow Studio Cinema event. Knuckey says: “I have to put timelines into textiles to bring them alive!”

Have a look through London designer Quentin Jones’ amazing sequences and visit the Slow Studio on April 20th to see more of this inspirational and exciting genre!
