Alison Welsh is a designer who is deeply influenced by Indian crafts and traditional detailing. Her garments are created as a response to her on-going research methods into sustainable Indian manufacturing. As an Associate Dean at Manchester Metropolitan University she has been exploring these themes through her research projects. Her two ranges are entitled Hand Made and Translation, the first is organic and fully hand woven, and the second is crafted from white hand spun Khadi cotton. Collaborating with master weavers, embroiderers and tailors she has created a collection of one off sustainable garments with a distinctive finish.
Highlighting the previously overlooked potential of Kala cotton, the collection features the sustainable and indigenous species of cotton grown in Kachchh in northern India. Away from genetic modification, Kala cotton is pure a resilient. Khadi cotton is a traditional white material that is hand spun and fine in texture. Welsh’s collection celebrates the virtues and natural softness of the materials whilst fusing her British heritage with Indian cutting techniques and materials with a minimal sensibility. Silhouettes are loose and flattering whilst harbouring distinctive patterned weaving and traditional detailing.
