STAND BY ME. EVERYONE OF ME.
Same print, different colour-way. I began to love print making so much as many fashion companies use the same fabric suppliers and there is a lot of secrecy around where fabrics are sourced from. Designing my own textiles gave me a freedom of making my collections with fabrics that were completely unique to RACHEL MCMILLAN. The prints are very distinctive and very quickly the brand became recognised for it's digital print design.
This collection explores the theme of people having different sides to them, different personas that come out to play at different times and considers whether it is possible for us to love them all.
The artwork shows two figures back to back, turning away from each other. The repeat INSISTS they look at each other, there is no turning away. At one point or another we will all be presented with opportunities to look at the sides we don't want to, both in ourselves and in other people.
