K. Riley

Havertown, PA

This botanical and insect inspired collection is linoleum block printed. I design, illustrate and painstakingly hand-carve each linoleum block. Garment sections are 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 I strive to create a unique, wearable, and beautifully constructed garment with timeless design, historical references, and impeccable craftsmanship.
