The patched lining of a silk kimono, fading images of botanical prints, a cracked bowl - just the perfect shade of green, the jewel-coloured ribbons in her grandmother's sewing box, the silhouette of a bird against the wide open sky. These varied and eclectic sources provide the starting point for Rebecca's collections, which reinterpret traditional imagery in a fresh and contemporary way.
With a strong interest in both colour and content, Rebecca has worked with many of the leading UK trend forecasting companies. Her knowledge of emerging trends in Europe and further afield in relation to textiles and product enables her to produce designs, which are at the same time directional and commercial.
Rebecca joined First Eleven Studio in 1992 contributing exciting collections, all with her unique style; sophisticated, spacious, uncomplicated and uncompromisingly contemporary. Her interest in new technologies in textile production as well as a love of exploring and pushing traditional techniques has led her to develop both digital and craft elements in her work. Working from her studio in London Rebecca uses digital and screen print techniques alongside hand-dyed or stitched elements, constantly exploring to come up with something new.
Rebecca is an Associate Lecturer at Central Saint Martins, London.
