Kinetic Fashion Parade - dissonance

Saturday was the Canberra Institute of Technology's Graduating Fashion Parade.

I modeled for a girl called Netti Clarke, and her label 'Dissonance'
Her collection was inspired by a piece of music (sorry I am not sure which one), and it was about creating anxiety for the audience. Each look was inspired by a section of the music and the mood that it created, and then translated into her clothings through shapes, fabric, and space.

The look I wore included a magenta leather jacket/neckpiece which was made using techniques in Takomo Nakamichi's pattern magic, as well as the top which was based around 'wearing a circle'. The pants were tight fitting and were made from upholstry fabric, so had the plastic like backing on the inside.
We were the first group to start off the parade, and I came out second. SCRAY!
All 6 looks from the collection as we came out together are shown above

We had makeup from 8:30am, hair at 2pm, inbetween promoting the parade, and from 4pm makeup touch ups and rehersals, and the parade opening at 7:30pm! Oh and then the afterparty of course...wooo! One long day!
Below is the collection from a girls collection called 'Reading Clare'
She used canvas, reflective light film and carbon fibre in her collection.
I assisted her in machining, fitting her models, and did the pattern making for the shoulder piece on the 3rd model. It was a lot of fun, and I am really glad that I got to assist her and was able to play with some materials and techniques I had not used before.
I will upload pictures shortly of the construction methods and a better close up.

Mitch Thompson created a collection for his label 'Perpetually Five' it was a really fun collection playing with mens wear and using childrens drawings as inspiration and for the print of his fabrics. It would have been a lot of fun modelling for him, if he wanted a tom boy model I would have been all over that!

Jade Sargent with her label SOVATA, a girl who I was studying Millinery with all this year created the above collection. She created a zero waste pattern making method where she wraped strips of fabric around 3D patterns she made. Her final millinery pieces were amazing and I couldn't stop looking at them. They were really incredible and her collection was meant to be a unique racewear collection.
