Alan Moore is a designer living and working in Glasgow and the creative talent behind ten30. Here, he tells us where he makes…
I design womenswear for my label “ten30” focusing on simple shapes with an emphasis on surface textiles, mainly print and embroidery. Prints are designed in house and teamed with some of the best fabrics in Scotland, from pure new lambswool to Scottish roe deer leather, where possible, everything is made in Scotland, this is important to me. I love collaborative work, and this year I have a lot of projects lined up, including some menswear, accessories, jewellery and exhibitions.
I am based in the newly opened Grey Wolf Studios, the building used to be offices but has recently been renovated and turned into artists studios. The place houses a fantastic mix of creative talent, including sculpture, painting, music, graphic design and film, which is so inspiring to my own work. Being able to talk over ideas with other artists from different disciplines really pushes my own work and my own development as a designer.
I am currently finishing a new collection, working on a look for the From Scotland With Love show in New York as well as designing for Harris Tweed Hebrides and working on a piece for the upcoming Analogue Social PAPER exhibition.
‘Where I Make’ invites readers behind the scenes of artists from many disciplines to share photographs and a little insight about where they create their masterpieces. See more from the series here.
