Alice Allum

Alice is a freelance textile designer based in London. She graduated from London College of Fashion in 2013 and went on to work as an account manager at a clothing supplier and manufacturer. She says that she loved being involved in the creative process of the design and development of garments however felt her skills in painting and illustration weren’t being utilised. She has found textile design to be the perfect amalgamation of art and design.

Her work is painterly and playful with an emphasis on abstract shapes and bold marks. She really enjoys the process of mark making by hand and then layering these elements on photoshop to create a refined but fun design.

She takes inspiration from everyday objects and forms. From botanical shapes to architecture and interior items. Colour and texture play a central part in both my process and final outcome.
