Northern Soul, 2012


Northern Soul was an LCF first-year research and design project. Each student was given a specific movement to explore, the end goal to make a pair of trousers and jersey top.


I researched the interiors of dance halls used during this movement and the transport that took them there. Taking inspiration from the bus seats that sat many Northern Soul enthusiasts, I combined 1970s textiles with upholstery fabrics.
