Below are two design extractions I did using my Nick Knight research for layering and research I did on Zoe Bradley who uses large scale paper folding to create her garments. In the image below the tracing paper pattern is a repetition of the outline of the silhouette of the leaves in the Nick Knight photograph. The illustration is based on leaves and Zoe Bradley's work.

After doing my design extractions I came across this Vogue feature by Nick Knight and I was surprised by how similar it was to what I had been doing. I love how massive branches have been used to create wing-like shapes and I think it gives the photographs a real edge and impact.

Whilst doing some research for another module I came across this dress by Zoe Bradley and thought it linked really well to what I had been doing in my design extraction with the leaves because the dress is just made from giant paper leaves.
