Thistle Brown the 21-years old Designer originally from Kamo, is in his final year of textile Design at AUT, with a future that is already looking as a bright as his electric-hued garments, there is an undeniable sense of fun in his pieces. In his first collection Brown casts knitwear onto neoprene, a slightly strange, almost humorous juxtaposition of natural and synthetic influence from the 80s. The collection uses Shima Seiki knitting machine technology that allows the designer to create prints digitally.
