PROJECT: TWINSET FOR YIELD: MAKING FASHION WITHOUT MAKING WASTE, 2011.
THE DOWSE, NZ, MAR-JUNE 2011 & T.A.C, NY, SEPT 2011.
Digital print on linen, 1400x5400mm - collaboration with Holly McQuillan. Big thanks to Digitex for the print sponsorship!

ABOUT TWINSET: The print design was a response to the garment silhouettes developed through Holly's pattern-making, resulting in a complex security-envelope-inspired print, creating a cohesive, three-piece outfit.

ABOUT THE YIELD EXHIBITION: In Yield, we see the work of passionate New Zealand and international fashion designers who have a radical ambition – to make fashion without making waste. Zero waste fashion focuses on creating clothes that look good, but leave little or no waste. One such technique is to create a garment pattern, with gussets, pockets, collars and trims, that fits together like a puzzle. Another is to not cut the fabric, but drape it onto a mannequin, then tuck, layer and sew. Today, zero waste has become a focus for top fashion schools and an inspiration of the truly fashion forward.
