I was lucky to work with Karen, she is an amazing beading queen who made my crazy idea for a skeleton ribcage beaded top possible (shown below is a back view of the completed garment)

 

more exciting things to look at

on a rainy monday like this, there is nothing better than getting a warmed up with a skim latte and sitting in front of the computer screen looking at inspirational work. go to http://www.fashiondesignuts.com/ to view some of the other students work from our graduating year of UTS Design (Fashion and Textiles).

portfolio


These are a couple of recent images taken for my portfolio. Thanks to Michael from http://www.iheartdesign.com.au for taking the shoot on at such late notice, its appreciated!!

Both pieces shown are from second year. the bodice is designed to exhibit the hand bead work on the neck, the shape was inspired by the Metropolis movie and past images of the imagined future.

The second piece is a dress that i designed for Mary Brown’s embroidery and beading subject. The applique piece was a painting that i did with watercolours directly to the backing fabric, and all the beading was hand done. It was selected for exhibition and was on display at the Embroiderers Guild.

I think the most interesting part of these images is that you can see the direct relationship to where i am today. These two pieces were strong examples of my development of my interests. I find myself now working towards embroidery, painting and imaginative shapes, my collection reflects the utilization of these skills.

This is a sneak peek from the location… Much more to come 🙂 thanks again to Angela, Nathan and Jessica… (I will credit you all properly when i post the final images) xx
