A reuse design project centred on modernising workwear utilising waste to influence design. By sourcing waste from the local waste management centre, I was inspired to hybridise workwear with outdoor wear by using traditionally outdoor fabrics and materials in unconventional ways through a contemporary workwear context. The results are a pair of flared carpenter’s pants made from a discarded inflatable …

New Life

Nicola Panayiotou

For this assignment i decided to create a two piece garment that depicts a collaboration between chic day wear, and modern futuristic clothing. This concept was achieved by utilizing circular design methods such as, the re use of discarded clothing and the preservation of unconventional objects, that typically end up in land fills. The materials that have been included in …

Ruby Sullivan’s Exhibition Piece

Ruby Sullivan

My piece reflects my project statement being ‘to create a garment using patchwork and joining techniques. To utilise unfinished edges and opposing fabrics’. I made this tunic using scrap fabric and a overlocker. I created the ombre effect using multiple different colours and fabric types to create a vastly different yet cohesive piece. I chose to join my pieces using …

Reimagining the unused

Hanako Muller

This piece was born out of the exploration of the functionality, emotional sentiment and aesthetics of op-shopped lace doilies that are often never re-homed due to their perceived ‘outdated’ nature.  Using methods of deconstruction and reconstruction I experimented with varying seaming techniques and potential end uses. With a strong focus on reintroducing the doilies back into circulation, I aimed to …

Reborn

Qinxuan Wu

For this project, I propose to use discarded materials from the delivery parcels I received during quarantine as the primary materials to design a garment. By achieving this project’s outcome, I want to express the concept of giving the objects that seem useless and ‘dead’ a second life; I named this project Reborn. The inspiration for this project is from …

Zoe Baker-Bellesis

A few weeks ago, my family were amid replacing our house curtains. In doing so, we had heaps of fabric leftover from the old curtains. This provided me with a starting concept; to explore the potential of repurposed curtain. I struggled to conceptualise a final outcome but after some experimentation with said fabrics, I thought to use the same checkerboard-patchwork …

Project Description: For this project, I wanted to take an existing item of clothing I had and transform it into something new, something exciting, something unique and something that is completely different to what it originally was, whilst maintaining the main signifiers of the original item. I believe that the piece I created meets this criteria. As I have produced …

A Dressed Crockery

Chih Ting Shung

Chiara Shung I wanted to subtly highlight the concept of ‘waste’ by incorporating fabric waste, whilst acknowledging food waste. The motive in creating crockery, an everyday use that involves food waste, symbolises the privileges of food on our plates juxtapose to third world countries or homelessness. As we consume a heap amount daily, we also contribute to more waste than …

Bhawana – Roses N Roses

Bhawana Chandnani

Roses N Roses is inspired by Dior newly launched perfume which has the aroma of sweetly scented flowers. My dress is inspired by the sensitivity and charm like Dior’s Roses N Roses. Originally the dress is inspired by the new fragrance launched but my outfit is inspired by the Dior’s Roses N roses couture pink gown. The chosen garment is …
