DESERT DESIGNS

Desert Designs applies contemporary technology to the art of an ancient culture and brings it to a new public in today's fashion world. It is perhaps surprising that depictions of remote desert landscapes and esoteric stories should become successful designs for fabric and a post - millennial range of clothing; that they do so speaks to both the brilliance of Jimmy Pike's original drawings and the flair of imaginative young designers. COLLECTION : Spring/Summer 2014/15 collection ‘Together, Towards the Water’ Desert Designs’ Spring/Summer 2014/15 collection ‘Together, Towards the Water’ is inspired by three of Jimmy Pike's stories. ‘Japingka’ depicts how people and spirits work together, harnessing the forces of nature to create waterholes. ‘Mangkja’ is a white bird from the Dreamtime, like an owl. ‘Mirnmirt’ is a sand drawing: when a woman talks about marriage with a man, she draws this story in the sand. Desert Designs brings together a conceptual collection for both men and women, exploring the themes of love and water. ‘Together, Towards the Water’ is a colorful, rich landscape print collection that celebrates the universal sacredness of water and the effects this natural element has on our emotions. INSPIRATION POEM Towards the water. The eagle guides us. Across yellow cosmic dust. Over rainbow ranges. Through orange skies. Into crystal water holes we dive. Drift to the tide, Drink shimmering blue, Together, a circle of harmony with you.
