The author

I recently graduated from a bachelor of Veterinary Technology from the University of Queensland. I have always had a passion for the arts but after school I felt the only way I would be able to get a job is with a science degree. Now that I am working I realise it is so much more important to take a chance on doing something I love rather than settling. I have always been interested in art and fashion but now I want more. I want to be able to create my own style and fashion as well as admire other people's. This year I began putting my own design ideas into fruition and by applying for design school I hope to be able to take my ideas even further and begin creating on a large scale for other people.

Project details

Overview

This piece was the first project I created the idea for, and then went on to sew myself. I took inspiration from other brands such as ASOS and Misguided that had created bold set pieces. Set pieces most commonly involve a skirt and top, or shorts and top combination. However, as this piece was created specifically to be worn at Splendour in the Grass, I wanted to provide extra warmth, hence fashioning the bottoms into long pants. Completely by chance I stumbled across the fabric. It was originally a bedsheet. I used it because I felt that all together it created a scene, rather than just two pieces of clothing made out of the same, bold fabric. The pants were created by slightly altering some embellishments, such as the top and drawstring, of a pants pattern. The top was created by analysing a top I already owned and following the procedure of how it was made.
