Picture Perfect

From flower power to retro classic cards. I may not have lived in the 1970’s but, a photo album found in a flea market in Lisbon, that records two young 70’s children growing up has given me insight. My aim in this project was to produce contemporary prints and children’s clothing inspired by the 1970’s. My collection depicts a nostalgic, contemporary retro message through a range of printed and handmade textiles.
