K. RILEY

HAVERTOWN, PA

My training and specialties are in textile and apparel design, illustration, and costume history. This botanical and insect inspired collection is linoleum block printed. I design, illustrate and painstakingly hand-carve each linoleum block, carving up to five blocks for an individual garment printing. Each garment section is printed before construction. I layer prints and colors to get the desired effect, carefully considering all the garment design details before printing. My silhouettes are drawn from my historical costume studies. I translate shapes and details from the past, adding a contemporary twist. I strive to create a unique, wearable, and beautifully constructed garment with timeless design, historical references, and impeccable craftsmanship.
