University of the Arts London – Showtime for Cherica Toshiba Haye

Cherica Toshiba Haye JacquardThe University of the Arts London shares the works of their artists and designers on its Showtime website.

This is an effective way of demonstrating the skills and techniques of their students and providing a potentially global audience for their works at low cost.

It was disappointing though the lack of interaction offered on these showcases – no option to leave feedback let alone share with social media sites like Facebook and Twitter.

One of the many showcased is textile designer Cherica Toshiba Haye of Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design.

Her collection is called ‘Chimera‘ and she describes her inspiration for this collection as nature in the form of birds and flowers and an exhibition of Imperial Chinese Robes from the Forbidden City at the Victoria and Albert Museum.

Her textile work focusing on weave (inc Jacquard), embroidery and print.

Her work is very visual and tactile, the latter not ideally suited to experiencing on a computer screen – as the search for ever more realistic and immersive viewing only extends to the visual and audio senses with touch and smell neglected!

Nevertheless the showcase provides us the opportunity not just to see the outfits modelled but also to see the materials used – including silk and mohair – up close and in detail.

Please go see for yourself.
