The collection is called GraphX and makes use of digital printing direct onto the fabric – a process that has revolutionized fabric design in general.  In addition to the clothing designs, Sonia created all the Op Art patterns herself in Adobe Illustrator.

“I discovered my interest in op art this year, when one of my teachers encouraged me to go in this direction with my designs. So I began thinking practically about how optical illusions would look on textiles – in a way that retained the optical illusion aspect.  I had always been attracted to this type of art – one of my favourite artists being Maurits Cornelis Escher.  I also love Bridget Riley’s works, Vasareli’s and recently I found Helen Owen‘s works which I think are very original and beautiful.”

“The first illusion print I designed was based on putting black and white rectangles together in different sizes and then distorting them with a twist effect. People who saw the print on fabric uncut became dizzy very quickly. My tailor turned the fabric on the other side when she cut it because she was getting dizzy, too”
