A Fine Line

trophy Awarded

A Fine Line explores the balance between structure and fluidity, tidiness and mess in the context of both fashion and life. The collection draws particular inspiration from artist Brett Whiteley and his use of colour, line, and brush stroke. This collection and concept has evolved over the year as I have learned to embrace the beauty of my loose and fluid design practice. A Fine Line, is in some ways a metaphor for life and the beauty that can be found in imperfection.

As part of my practice I use both my intuitive and acquired design skills to express my appreciation of the female form. I draw inspiration from the natural world as well as from contemporary art and design. Draping, smocking, cording, and refined tailoring techniques serve to enhance the overall tactile and visual experience of the both wearer and viewer.
