My graduate collection was heavily inspired by tyre treads, motorcycle gear and masculine shapes. This is something that evolved from learning about my grandad and his interests. After researching the motorbike industry, I began to collate lots of research. A poignant finding for my concept, was a motorcycle show I visited, in which I noticed the varying tyre treads on the motorbikes. This lead me to developing various samples based upon the tread design. Which enabled me to then create a collection with varying textures, shape and depth.
