BetaFashion: Heaven's Door Project

I designed a scarf print for the BetaFashion competition Heaven's Door Project.

It would be amazing if you could take the time to vote for my print! Click here to vote.

The winner of each competition receives £300 and could see their design sold on the BetaFashion store in Topshop and many more stores!

"Death has always been a seminal theme in the arts, with little wonder why as it is the most universal of topics, sure to engage and stir the emotions of each one of us. It's relationship with fashion however is somewhat more curious and unexpected, particularly in the commercial arena. Yet in recent years we've seen death play a prominent role in fashion, particularly with the use of Skulls, crossing over from being mainly the reserve of the Rock scene to something far more mainstream, advocated in particular by the likes of Alexander McQueen. Historically skulls have been used as the very symbols of death and mortality, but notably also as symbols for poison, vanity and more. There is even some suggestion that the large eye sockets of skulls create an inherent visual appeal to us due to a phenomena called Neoteny.

Looking forward to Autumn/Winter the topic of this project therefore is skulls. We're looking for scarf designs that embrace this topic and represent it in a beautiful and contemporary way."
