Meet our Designers - Taisir Gibreel13-Dec-2011
This month we feature TAISIR GIBREEL- check out her beautifully designed, must-have luxurious silk scarves.
Taisir’s sense of colour and pattern and her fearless approach to design lead to highly distinctive and elaborate combinations of colour and print; creating bold and abstract designs. A keen interest in current affairs lends her work a compelling narrative which is the corner stone of her designs.
Taisir’s Father was Sudanese and Mother is English; having grown up in Sudan and moved to the UK at 17, her work reflects her background, an eclectic cultural fusion, set against the colours, shapes and textures of the Scottish Highlands. The collections are inspired by the Scottish Highlands and made in England, truly celebrating contemporary British design and craftsmanship.
Taisir graduated from Duncan and Jordanstone, Scotland, as a textile designer specialising in print and weave. Shortly after graduating Taisir embarked on her mission to embrace the bold and abstract.
Her designs speak for themselves !!
