The Story

Born in Cape Town, Shilo Engelbrecht migrated with her family to Australia where she undertook a Fine Arts Degree in Fashion/Textiles. She was awarded the “Mercedes Benz Start Up” prize for her graduate collection and the “Emerging Designer of the Year” by the Design Institute of Australia. Shilo has shown her work at the Powerhouse Museum, G’Day L.A, Craft Victoria and held textile workshops for children’s festivals and The Cerebral Palsy League of Australia.

The paintings I did during summer, in a tiny greenhouse in Cambridge, have been digitally printed onto textiles by the Centre of Advanced Textiles. These fabrics have been used in a range of practical interior products and are available, made to order.

The paintings were an exercise in spontaneity and have an emphasis on brush strokes and colour. They tell a personal story about my journey in Europe over the last few years and document my natural surroundings . I hope these items despite their practical nature, may challenge the perceived dullness and formality of some interior design with their vibrance and texture . They are not just for the table ! They can be framed, used as wall hangings, bed throws, upholstery, curtains, cushions…There are many exciting possibilities to display and love them forever.

About the Blog

The LOCAL DESIGN blog is a creative visual diary with content created and contributed by leading local and offshore creatives and designers.

We want the creative community to hide their inhibitions, let their hair down and showcase whatever their eclectic heart’s desire. From the projects they are working on, the places they are visiting, their childhood memories, what music they are listening too, whatever makes them tick, it is a complete open online creative platform. Go on we dare you to pick up a camera and tell us your stories….

Along with this open-minded approach to the blog we will also be reporting on global and local design weeks, events, exhibitions, shows etc. with raw and real visuals alongside interesting insider perspectives.

We are very excited to see what will happen on these pages……
