Dharma Taylor is a multidisciplinary designer and maker with a background specialising in textiles.
Dharma’s work is pre-occupied with the notion of separate realities and parallel lands, exploring sources ranging from technology, poetry, ancient civilisations and the dynamic differences in cultures.
Since graduating from the London College of Fashion with a Masters in Fashion Design Technology – Menswear and from Rochester University in Kent, she has worked on various artistic projects. They’ve been shown by a variety of national and international organisations and galleries including the Benaki Museum in Athens, Shibuya City Tokyo, the V&A and Tate Britain.
In an exciting development from her use of textiles, Dharma has approached working with wood in an organic way expressed through careful observation and respect of the natural material, paired with traditional carpentry techniques and a why-not attitude.
“As a designer with a background steeped in textile and menswear design, I wanted to create pieces that are not expected of me.”
