The Geometric Pattern

Geometric Design in 1920’s Fashion for Women
The geometric design was first seen in the 1920’s Fashion for women when the young free-spirited women in this modernist era of the Roaring Twenties and the Jazz Age, as women gained their freedom and independence. The 1920’s Fashion trends were the shorter, lower waist dresses and revealing styles worn by the Flappers, the ‘bobbed’ hairstyles, cloche hats, the casual, haphazard fashion of a mixture of brightly colored clothes, scarves and stockings with bold, striking Art Deco geometric designs of the era.  Fashion for women 1920

The Geometric Challenge

This weeks challenge the designers were asked to design one or two patterns using the brief of Amplified Geometric trend for women’s apparel S/S 2020. This weeks response has again been amazing, and the designers have really used their creativity having produced some exceptional quality work. Our aim for this weekly challenge was to create a brief that was both challenging and fun at the same time.

The Winner

The winner is Paola Pagano studio and is known to her friends and family as Paola. Paola is an illustrator and pattern designer based in Milan, where she moved after spending most of her 20’s in NYC. A naive graceful touch and a colourful, moody palette of textures characterize her work. Her cultural DNA ranges from the Italian traditional majolica motifs to the grace of Japanese prints, to the wacky New York style. Paola’s work has depth, richness, and emotion within each pattern. Her work is simple in some ways, yet so powerful and enchanting.

Paola has produced an amazing design, using all the colours given in the brief, and produced a great statement pattern suitable for women’s or Men’s wear 2020 Season. The design shows bold elements of geometric shapes that mix together in harmony, and the colours really work together to create a great statement piece that not only could be used on apparel but could be quite easily seen on a wall as a piece of art. The design looks just as good on a top, for women’s wear, but also works just as well on men’s trousers. To view more of Paola’s designs for license. Please click Here –
