  • ISSUU - FINAL MAJOR PROJECT. by MARIA GIANNAKOPOULOU

Textiles designer specializing in embroidery with passion for experimental hand embroidery. Work that is graphic and compact but also detailed and time consuming.Exploring the concept of visualizing sound and the role of audio in modern society through the use of interactive textiles and thermochromic inks.

The collection titled “In The Blink Of An Ear” is a selection of bespoke garments including hand manipulation of various fabrics alongside with a combination of print techniques, hand and machine embroidery.
Using embroidery skills to experiment not only with the deconstruction of linens and wools but also with their reconstruction and manipulation of their shapes via intricate machine embroidery, creating a complicated web of threads. The main interest is on the interaction of the threads with the movement of the human body, adding a refreshing and original essence on the stereotypical way of placing embroidery onto a garment. The collection has a playful yet sophisticated aesthetic, emphasizing the intricacy and movement of the textiles.
