Brigitte Marlot

Brigitte Marlot

Skills / Background: I’ve always been interest in Art and Design so I  went to Art School where I studied Surface Pattern Design, Photography and Interior Design. I went on to become  a Textile Designer, working for Designs Studios in France, UK, and Australia. I created original artworks for the fashion, kids wear and home furnishing markets. In my spare time I love taking photographs.

I love a great variety of styles and techniques, from the delicate hand-painted wallpapers of the 18th Century to the bold and joyful florals of the 70’s , lush bark cloths… Too many to detail all! In my own home I favour quieter and simpler prints, inspired by Modern Scandinavian Design.

Favourite Print: Jungle Lush by Typoflora, a fantastic print by a fantastic designer! For textile base cloths I love the soft and natural texture of Arizona. And Palermo Sugarcane is so luxurious (in the studio “everything looks good printed on Palermo” has become our catchphrase!)

Skills / Background: I always wanted to immerse myself in design, in particular textiles. Studying Textiles and Graphics A-Levels in UK, I then developed my skills further by moving to Australia to do my BA of Design at UNSW. 

Alongside my education I was also brought up by two very creative parents, both sharing their different sides of the brain. My mum was all about the freedom and playfulness with Art, whereas my Dad being an engineer was about creating things that follow precision and structure. 

It’s amazing how diverse textiles can be from one country to another, from the past to present there is just so much inspiration. Anything with lots of bold colours, I’m instantly drawn to it.  I like to still see elements of the handwriting when creating a digital print, the strokes of the paint brush, gradient from a watercolour and the markings from fineliners. 

Collections created: The Tetris Collection, Siena Collection and Floral Dancer Collection. Collaborated with the digital team and the external designers to create collections for Kelly Kratzing, Miranda Brown, Shibori, Patricia Braune, Sibella Court, Grace Garrett, Typoflora, Sara B, Jimmy Pike and Florence Broadhurst.

Favourite Print: Hailstorm Plants on Palermo Sugarcane.

Skills / Background: Being creative has always been my go-to thing. I love being surrounded by colours and prints! I studied Design at UNSW and became involved in the world of textile design after graduating. Since then, I’ve had the opportunity to create original prints for fashion and swimwear in on one of Australia’s leading textile studios. That’s where I developed my love of illustration – whether a simple line sketch or a detailed drawing, I’m always happy creating with pencils, pens and paper.

In my spare time I enjoy working on hand-crafted projects. Nothing beats the satisfaction of making something from scratch! Travel and exploring different cultures and histories are major sources of inspiration for me, as are strolls along the beach or walks in the bush. Being immersed in nature and all her textures and colours does wonders for the mind and body, and always gets me thinking of what I can draw next!

Favourite Print: I am in awe of Typoflora’s Jungle design and I have always loved the fun vibes I get from Florence Broadhurst’s Cockatoos.

Skills / Background: I went to Fashion School and have always been interested in graphics, illustration and art. While working as a fashion researcher and designer in Brazil, I was constantly in touch with the creative world of prints and patterns which always impressed me. It wasn’t until I moved to Australia that I decided to commit to the passion of drawing and creating patterns, with the goal to illustrate various surfaces from fashion to interiors.

Constantly experimenting in the realm of illustration on my personal projects, I often find inspiration in all things vintage. I’m usually drawn to layered and elaborate artworks. Fine liners and black ink are one of my favourites, but watercolours and gouache paintings never cease to amaze me.

Favourite Print: Rainforest by Typoflora is such a rich and impressive artwork! I love how rustic and natural it looks on a fabric like Bruge.

Skills / Background: From a young age I have always expressed myself in creative ways. I would fill my pockets with ‘pretty objects’ (more like garbage) for craft. I adored painting and creating things very early on in my life.

After finishing high school I went straight to art school for a year, before transferring to UNSW to study design where I majored in textile design and jewellery. My passion for pattern and textiles really came to light when I studied for 6 months at Ulster Uni in Northern Ireland. I spent most of my days drawing, creating collages and screen printing.

I have a number of creative outlets I enjoy doing in my spare time – sewing, drawing, Lino printing, jewellery making, to name a few. I love creating and learning new skills. I am constantly inspired by the world around me.

Favourite prints: I love the retro vibes of Florence Broadhurst’s Chinese Floral prints. I also love how fresh and lush Patricia Braune’s exotic paradise prints are.
