Latest Designs for "Undercurrents" Exhibition

Our recent Fashion Parade and "Undercurrents' Exhibition for the Eurobodalla Fibre Textile Artists were both huge successes. The greatest ever number of people visited the exhibition and we had a full house for the fashion parade.

These pieces were displayed in the Exhibition. The first red piece is entitled "Electric Currents" and is a merino and nuno sleeveless jacket with stand-up collar that had free-hand machine embroidery on it in silver threads. Next are hand embroidered harem slippers. I create my own pattern and made the fabric from different pieces and hand-stitched the pieces together with gold embroidery. The piece is title "Bedroom Undercurrents". The blue sleeveless blouse is made from fine silk, hand-dyed in indigo dye, hand pleated and steamed, titled "Sea Currents". I cut the pattern whilst a friend of mine modeled the fabric - so it is truly an "original" piece. Lastly is a hand sewn shibori piece. The dye was removed from the fabric revealing the fine drawn stitching. Finished off with found objects and entitled "Surface Undercurrents". I hope you like them!

The fashion parade pieces will be put on this blog very soon.
