About Annie Walker:
Annie specialises in embroidery and embellishment, she loves heavily textured, sensory pieces of work which is why she always sways towards these techniques more than others.
Annie's designs for her last project 'What Makes Us Human?' were originally inspired by her family. She used a lot of colour theory and symbolism and the idea was to provoke emotion and create an atmosphere with them. Annie wanted to create something really personal but wanted to create it in a not so obvious way. She was also inspired by DNA and the formation and structure of cells, for this and wanted to make something that looked very structured and organised like cells do, but she also wanted to keep the fragility and delicacy of beading there.
Favourite textile technique: Embellishment, it's the finishing touch to any piece I create!
Inspirational Designers: Ellie Saab, Valentino, Matthew Williamson, Yumiko Arimoto, Chanel, Alexander McQueen, Gucci.
Dream job: This is always a hard question, there are so many things I would love to do, but my ultimate goal is to be able to be a freelance textile designer and sell my work full time.
