I wanted to develop a series of patterns that speak to the aspirational travel destinations that I hope to someday adventure to: Peru, Greece and New Zealand. These diverse regions all have specific geographical features, but I found the meandering forms a continuous theme amongst all three locations. I aim to explore every nook and cranny when I travel, and wanted the print collection to evoke a sense of visual wandering. Each unique winding landscape had an interesting specific area of focus for investigation, from manmade globular architecture to naturally formed snaking waterways. The end usage of the series would be in application of a women's trench coat, where the dynamic pathways could lend themselves to express female curvature.

[Inspiration board for travel destination of Peru, repeated meandering organic and manmade forms were a dominant focus]

[Inspiration board for travel destination of Greece, layered architecture elements and winding alleys as an area of focus for motifs]

[Inspiration board for travel destination of New Zealand, organic passageways and tiers of elevation serve as a primary focus]
