Taisir Gibreel’s collections of must-have luxurious ‘Art to Wear’ fashion accessories Celebrate Colour, Culture and Diversity. The designs are based on original hand drawings of rural and urban Scottish Landscapes. Drawing great inspiration from the colours and shapes found in the highlands and the geometric shapes and structures found in the Scottish Parliament building. Taisir’s designs are distinctive in their use of elaborate combinations of colour and pattern; creating bold and abstract designs.
Taisir’s strengths are her sense of colour and pattern and her fearless approach to design; the designs are a mixture of rich, contrasting colours and prints that create striking textiles. With a keen interest in current affairs all her designs echo this, narrative design is the corner stone of her work. Taisir’s Father was Sudanese and Mother is English, having grown up in Sudan and moved to the UK at 17, her work reflects her background, an eclectic cultural fusion.
“Designing the collections is a real journey of discovery across the Highlands – offering an opportunity to reflect, gain clarity and appreciate nature. It is an exciting, unpredictable and thoroughly fulfilling project exploring colour, pattern, print and texture.”
