GIRL IN GOLD

This metallic chic design was created completely from discarded coffee pods. 

MEMORY LANE

This two piece dress is designed using photography film roll sourced from a local photographer. The negatives contain thousands of images from the last ten years, ranging from family portraits to sports teams and beyond. This dress is completely hand sewn, hand knitted and ruffled. The dress starts as a bardot style at the top and flows down to an elegant fish tail and train. There are three different textures in line with the rule of thirds in photography. The headpiece is created through ruffling, the main body is hand knitted and the train is created using a lace stitch to finish.

FIGHT THE FLAME

Fight the Flame’ is inspired by the horrendous effects of flaming forest fires. To raise awareness of the devastating effect that these have on the environment we created this dress out of fire hose. The patchwork skirt represents a view from the helicopters as they spray the blazing land. The bodice’s circular form recreates the stored hose. The flowers resemble flora, forever obliterated as a result of the devastating fires. Our head piece is a symbol of the plume of clouds. We plaited, weaved, stitched, sewed and twisted more than two fire hoses together to create this sustainable dress.
