Marlis Kimfumu is a textile designer specialising in print. Her inspiration comes from her surrounding and storytelling, getting inspiration particularly from old photographs and stories.
Her apron “People” is part of a wider collection of home textiles designed by University of Arts London students, to celebrate the coming together of UAL’s Creative Shift and not just a shop.
The students were commissioned to design a range of homeware inspired by the theme ‘home’ and what emotions this elicits for them.
Working with interior designer Eva Sonaike, the students took part in a 6-week collaborative project to create products ready for market. The students were supported through a process that took them from product ideation to manufacture to visual merchandise.
