Pleated dresses by * Louise Critchley : Inspired by architecture and origami, Critchley’s work reflects her exploration of form and structure. The plain simple forms of the garments are emphasized by the neutral colour palette of the collection. Rather than using pattern cutting techniques, the artist explored garment construction through hands on manipulation of the fabric to create beautifully simple clothing.
* Marilyn Bastien : Bastien has created a collection of voluminous dresses that reflect the lines and forms of shells. Informed by the growth process of a shell whereby it builds up many layers on top of each other, the artist experimented with layering fabric to create garments that take on large and unusual forms when worn.
* Liam Evans : Evans covers the surface of his designs with a pastiche of detailed illustrations that reflect his dreams, fantasies and experiences and also incorporate interpretations of contemporary cultural and social concerns. By combining intricate autobiographical drawings with over-sized silhouettes, Evan creates intriguing and unusual garments that draw on the personal and cultural.
