Sportswear Project

(2017)

This was a first year project inspired by the growing relationship between knitted textiles and sportswear. I chose to focus on tennis because it is a classic sport that involves lots of movement. I wanted to maintain the classic colours associated with tennis, green and white but also add in some florescent bursts of colour. Playing tennis puts lots of pressure on joints, so I experimented with re-inforcing the knitted textile with ribs and ripples to provide support.
