Scarlett Anderson’s Diva collection inspired by opera – the numerous iconic heroines featured in classic stories that continue to reflect and influence contemporary culture and society. Of particular to Anderson is the design journey and how a concept develops into a fully-wearable work of art. Design illustrations are used as a print for the lining of the apparel to help express the process from design to realisation, and the garments are topstitched to illuminate the time it takes to craft each piece.
Isabella Inga considers the concept of emotional contagion – how empathetic responses can be generated through bold and expressive artwork.
Saadia Shiekh’s collection arose from a desire to demonstrate that disability is not synonymous with inability. It is designed for diverse bodies.
