UTS Tie and Scarf
Christine Pan 10707254
UTS is a place of diversity and renowned for its architecture, creativity and push for sustainability.
Digital textile prints for both the tie and the scarf has drawn inspiration from photos taken around
the university (building 10 and building 6) in which the tie pattern developed out of the strong, bold
and brutal textures of the concrete ceiling in building 6 whilst the textures for the scarf developed
out of the light, crisp and flowing glass facades of building 10. Each chosen materiality corresponded
to the feeling of masculinity versus femininity.
The tie design and colourways exhibit a corporate yet striking pattern with a focus on difference,
innovation and originality. The stripe pattern runs from left to right, offset by the slight, leaner lines
in the background and opposing foreground running at slightly different angles giving the overall
feeling of intrigue to this interpretation of the traditional stripe tie.
The scarf design is composed of various layers of opaque colours. Elements of the tie pattern has
been infused back into the scarf in a subtle and impressionistic way. Hand-drawn illustration of the
face is overlaid to create interest and originality as well as to allude to UTS design and especially
the fashion design course from which the textiles component is part of. The various square shapes
a reminiscent of computer chips (technology and innovation) as well as forming a design feature
