The first installment of the Designer Collaboration series will see the innovative flooring specialists collaborate with Melbourne-based independent fashion designer Megan Park.

Loved for her fashion designs, Megan Park brings her timeless and romantic aesthetic to create her own Signature Flooring Series. Renowned in the fashion world for fusing Parisian chic, a love for Victorian beading and a bohemian wanderlust to her designs, Megan began her fashion design journey in the foothills of the Himalayas. Her passion eventually led her to participate in London Fashion Week in the late 90s and score spots at prestigious department stores such as Harvey Nichols, Liberty and Barney’s in New York.

Megan’s understanding of textiles, color and design and her unrivaled experience in the fashion industry transpires in her Designer Collaboration Series collection. Beginning with hand-drawn illustrations and gouache paintings in MP’s studio, the artworks were inspired by nature and in particular the Briar design referencing Australian plants – the fantastical interpretations of the floral blossoms of protea.

More understated than original bespoke designs, tonal flooring colorings are both bold and sympathetic to an interior space.

Talking about the process of creating flooring, Megan says, “It is extremely exciting to see our textile artworks transformed into dynamic rugs and flooring. I’ve always wanted to “think big”, but we’re limited to dress size. There is certainly not this constraint when imagining the design filling the size of a room. It’s a truly collaborative process, forging our illustrative artwork and design sensibilities with the technical savvy of Signature Studio’s design team. What a pleasure it has been to create this capsule collection. As much as we love wearing our designs, I can’t wait to step into a space and see them come to life!”

Megan paints a picture of the ideal setting for her designs, explaining, “I imagine a large reception room, a cozy office, a boutique hotel room. There is a warmth and elegance to the designs that I think I will never tire of.

Speaking about the launch of the Designer Collaboration Series, Anthony O’ Halloran, Director, Signature Floors and Signature Studio explains, “We value design and love being part of the collaborative process when working with designers to achieve incredible results. As an Australian company, we wanted to provide a platform for creatives to work outside of their own mediums and get excited in new ways, teaming up with our highly experienced in-house textile team.

Megan Park’s Designer Collaboration Series Is Now available to order.

Over the next twelve months, Signature Studio will unveil collaborative designs with an array of Australian designers, including multidisciplinary artist Kate Banazi, design duo Maricor and Maricar Manalo and costume designer Jennifer Irwin.
