Eleanor Bowley

Eleanor Bowley graduated from the Arts Institute in Bournemouth with a BA Hons in Illustration. She recently produced a limited edition line of clothing for urban outfitters, based on recycling second hand garments. i like the collaged style of her work and the combination of various media to create quirky, vintage looking pieces.

Eleanor Bowley uses an element of recycling in her work, which links in with the idea of Eco- friendly and sustainable products, which i thought would be useful for my current project on innovation. She re-uses waste textile materials, and second hand buttons; things that are considered to be waste. Bowley deconstructs pieces of clothing and uses fabrics as a base to work further with combining the collage process. Her inspirations are fabrics buttons and vintage text.
