Madison Farrior: Lost & Found
I am a senior studying at North Carolina State University, currently pursuing my dream of becoming a fashion and textile designer. Over time, I have realized that my work and my talent stem from my obsession with color. I am in love with the way an infinite number of color palettes can be drawn from a single inspiration, and the way in which those colors can completely transform fashion and textiles to evoke emotions of every kind. This collection is inspired by the colors and textures found in abandoned buildings. The peeling walls, cracked paint, rusty accents, and overwhelming architecture awaken feelings of a haunting emptiness. Inspired to create something new from something old, and something beautiful from something decayed, this collection presents a wide array of textile designs that connect past and present with the future in mind.
