Paper Ball Gowns

Kate Jones from Suki Hair Design was entering the Generation Next showcase at Hair Expo 2006, and needed a creative director to conceptualise a show for her. I am mad about paper and proposed a show consisting of 10 paper ball gowns using recycled paper. The electro pleated paper was provided by Rado Pleaters in Surry Hills. My students from the Styling Department worked with me for 4 weeks (2 days per week) to design and construct these wonderful 'garments'. Here is a 6 minute video of the show.

Wearble Art

In March 2006, Suki Hairdressing asked me to design a photo shoot for Julia, one of their staff. She had an idea to use jewelry as clothing. It took 8 hours to create 9 wearable art pieces out of 'nothing' . Here are a couple of shots from the day.

7 Deadly Sins

In January 2006, Brooke Blackwell from the Nischler Hair Salon in Hobart invited me to design a photo shoot along the lines of the 'Seven Deadly Sins'. What fun it is to tell small stories, using the body and the enviropnment. Clothing was sourced from my own collection, whilst jewelry was generously supplied by Alistair Trung and Conte Moda.
