FASHION & TEXTILES

I have always been committed to forward thinking and trailblazing design. My experimental gloves in digitally printed leathers have been featured in books by leading UK fashion lecturers, and attracted the interest of Vogue, Homes and Gardens and Amelia's Magazine.

As well as producing industrial prototypes for the sportswear market, I also designed small leather goods, handkerchiefs and scarves. 

 

I was a graduate of Winchester School of Art and a student at London College of Fashion and Central Saint Martins School of Art. My chief interest has always been in digitally engineered, vibrant, bold and modern digitally printed textile designs, often with a hand-drawn element and combined with sculptural fashion.

I sell selected fashion accessories at https://christinacrimari.etsy.com .
