This season we have been dyeing feathers for this beautiful feather bodice by Giles Deacon.

This post is all about Nick Ford the legendary screen printing and dyeing tech tutor at Ravensbourne. Nick taught Gav and Mika almost everything they know about screen printing and dyeing so this is a little salute to our print hero.
Nick started his career at Ravensbourne 35 years ago, the same year of the Queen’s Silver Jubilee and has been patiently teaching screen printing and dyeing to fashion and textile students ever since. His is well known within the Ravensbourne community as being super knowledgable and helpful. When asked how he has dealt with stroppy fashion students all these years he says,
‘When it all comes out perfect, goes down the catwalk and the smile on the students’ face…. that’s my favourite moment.’
Finally we can show you what we’ve been busy busy doing of the past couple weeks. Tie-dye and dip dyed feathers for the very decadent Giles A/W collection.
