The Bodysuits of Daisy Collingridge
Daisy Collingridge crafts wearable, stitched suits inspired by what’s contained beneath our skin. The artist’s background is in fashion, but “her practice has continued to revolve around textiles and fabric manipulation but has developed into the realms of sculpture and performance,” her site says.
“I would say my current technique is the called the art of the ‘squishy,’” she told the publication Textile Artist. “It’s an entertaining challenge to create large sculptural pieces using very basic techniques. The stitch used is a simple running stitch, but it’s the sculptural qualities of layering wadding and stretching jersey that creates these smooth round forms.”
