Fashion Craft: Drawn Threads

(20o8)

 

A collaborative contemporary embroidery project and exhibition between the Embroiderers’ Guild of NSW, and textiles designer Cecilia Heffer, menswear designer Todd Robinson and myself. The theme for my team, sustainability + couture, involved working with recovered textile waste that was sourced from a local recycling centre on a singular visit; the materials were reconfigured and reworked to create new textile concepts that could be applied within the luxury high fashion market. The work was made possible thanks to the dedication and skills of my wonderful embroidery team: Helen Parsons, Margaret Smith, Jaci Heyman, Dianne Edwards, Lucy Kennedy, Jenny Wyatt and Christine Wiltshire.
