Melbourne Fashion Week

Fashion Design, Textile Design

After working in textiles as a Graphic Designer, I qualified with a diploma in Fashion Design. Designing for Melbourne Fashion Week’s upcycle fashion program, I designed a womenswear look to the theme Kinship, sourcing pre-used denim and redesigning the garments into a patchwork embroidered spring summer jacket.

Upcycling is a good opportunity for a brand to invest in sustainability, as fabrics from existing garments can easily be repurposed into new garments at an inexpensive cost. Even if these garments are one-off designer creations, which is what the process mostly suits.
