Designer review: Joy Williams
Latex designer Joy Williams hails from the UK and is one who thinks outside the box when it comes to innovating with latex sheeting as a medium for fashion design. She’s made intricate inlays that are truly couture, and she also one of the first designers we’ve encountered who is creating embossed latex fashions.
She’s used a variety of methods for creating the ‘quilted’ look by embossing latex with a substrate underneath the sheeting, and she’s also created floral and geometric shapes. Her work is truly captivating!
Joy states on her Etsy profile:
Specialising in bold, contemporary designs, Joy’s work shies from the stereotypical, utilizing traditional and cutting edge techniques to create exquisitely embellished pieces. Pieces from Joy’s 2010/11 collection take inspiration from 17th century Damascus glass with clean architectural silhouettes… The 2011/12 collection takes this textural journey further, borrowing streamline, Deco geometry and translating it through quilting and paneling.
