PARISVILLE (Deja Vu) - PRE-ORDER opportunity "Especially For You" Celebrate Tula Pinks redesign of her First Colleciton..
Pre-Order: Buy the 1/2 metre
Parisville was my first collection for Free Spirit Fabrics which was originally released in 2010. This collection marked the start of a new partnership that has gone on to last more than a decade! The collectability of our print fabrics has continued to rise over the years. My goal is to make some of these older, hard-to-get, prints more accessible to new makers while preserving the integrity of the original collection. I have learned a lot about color and fabric design since I designed my fabric collection in 2006 and I am bringing all of that knowledge and experimentation to the new “Deja vu” collections that I hope to continue releasing once a year. The first installment of the “Deja vu” series is a favorite of mine. Parisville marked a directional change for me as an artist into bigger, more colorful designs that had a larger story telling quality. I have breathed new life into Parisville using a dreamy color palette of bright pastels and rich citrus colors. The design of Parisville was based on the story of Marie Antoinette, in all of its unnecessary decadence, as seen through the lens of what a young girl might think is “fancy”. It was only natural to pull the new color palette from a buffet of ice cream colors and dessert treats. This collection is like frosting, its sweet, decadent and entirely indulgent. I have left the designs largely intact in an effort to preserve the original qualities of the prints that made them popular in recent years. I made one notable change to the main print. The Cameo print had 3 different hair styles when it was first released and the new print focuses on only the most coveted and classic sailing ship hairstyle that best represents the narrative.
About the Designer:
Tula Pink is an illustrator, a fabric designer, a quilter, an author, a maker and a generally good person who enjoys talking about herself.
Tula graduated from Otis College of Art and Design in Los Angeles, CA. It was fun but she was tired of being broke so she decided to get a job. Tula worked briefly as an Exhibit designer for Museums in Southern California, where she grew up, and when that became too quiet she relocated to the music industry. After about 5 years of that her ears began to bleed so she left her job and California and went in search of a new home. The plan was to move as far east as she could get without renting a boat and work her way back west until she found a place she liked. Tula got about half way and then she ran out of gas money so she stayed put.
Tula now lives in a small mid-western town outside of Kansas City, MO in a house that used to be a barn and still sort of looks like one. Tula's main function in life is fabric design. She lives for it. Her signature designs have been adapted to fabrics, woven ribbons, paper products, needlepoint kits, embroidery patterns and sewing machines and can be found in independent fabric shops and retailers all over the world. Tula is most recognized in her industries for her dark sense of humor, a flair for hiding animals in the strangest of places (artistically, not literally) and her boldly unique use of color and pattern. Tula comes from the "more is more" school of design where there is never enough space and always room for that one last thing.
