Daisy Collingridge: When textile art and sculpture blur

Posted By Gudy Herder / January 31, 2020 / 0 Comments

Whenever you see a student thriving who graduates from St. Martins, you know you are in for a tactile treat. Daisy Collingridge’s wearable pastel-colored bodysuits are no exception and surprise by their refreshing take.

With names like Burt, Clive, and Lippy, her characters aim to push quilting to the absolute extreme.

They are reflective of the human form with elements of fantasy. They neither promote or demote one body type. The idea that there is an ‘ideal body’ is ridiculous. We are all so different; my work is more about the ‘ideal’ way to inhabit a body. To be joyous. They bring me joy to create, and I hope that this is reflected.”

The artisan process includes hand-dyed jersey and other fabrics filled with plastic beans and sewn together to form squishy elements in various shapes and sizes. One character can take easily up to two months to get ready.
