Pattern, Textiles & Fashion on Film

Quentin Jones for Kenzo Pre-Fall 2012

You may have noticed here recently that the Slow Textiles Group embrace animation and film narratives for textiles. This is because textiles manifest time and story-telling in their very DNA.  Even digital code is textiles inasmuchas each pixel echoes the needlepoint stitch or punchcard hole in order to make the image whole.

Last year we showcased amazing textile animator Tania Grace Knuckey’s witty, subtle and evocative textile animations at the Slow Studio Cinema. “I have to put timelines into textiles to bring them alive,” she says.

Have a look through London designer Quentin Jones amazing sequences and visit the Slow Studio on April 20th to see more of this inspirational genre!
