Degree Show 2015 - Jess Mocaci
The first textile graduate I have chosen to review is Jess Mocaci. She uses a combination of embroidery and print, layered up to make tactile designs for interiors. Her degree show work had a strong architectural feel to it. The detailing in her drawings is fluid yet structural. Taking inspiration from her work, I would like to consider using the use of line more within my own design practice.

Jess uses a variety of materials within her work which gives her designs a less flat look. This is not something I am familiar with but working with the puff binder in the print room could also achieve this texture look for my work.

The presentation of the samples I felt worked well between the textured fabrics and the hand drawn images. The boards are well mounted and I felt the presentation was strong which is also something I take great care in doing. As I would also like to design for interiors, the different ways of producing designs for this context is something I will bare in mind for the context.
