Having wanting to create something modern, the collection incorporates watercolour design into the embroidery print giving it a strong Chinese undercurrent. Watercolour paintings were key in the inspiration for digital prints, embroidery filing and lace, the main recurring theme. The water colour paints are the primary source in the creation of all the textiles in the collection. They have been developed into the embroidery, the silver foiling and into digital prints on the silk linings and the pleated chiffon dresses.
"As a child I was surrounded by watercolours at home and painted as often as I could. For this collection I decided to dust of my brushes and create new textiles for the Isabel Garcia Gold Label Collection." Elliott James Frieze
