Keumala – “ My Major Textile Project is an Indonesian styled skirt with a detailed crochet top. My design is inspired by my Indonesian culture that has been modified to be worn on special occasions to showcase its unique features. The highly decorative top is a reflection of skills and techniques I learnt whilst being in lockdown in 2022”

This gown has particular importance to me as it represents and reflects my identity as an Indigenous woman, with specific representation to my totem animal; the goanna. “


Charlie – “ For my Major Textile Project I created a dress inspired by the tragic floods  which devastatingly hit Australia’s Queensland and New South Wales damaging more than 25, 000 homes. This dress reflects how beautiful water can be , through the flow and colour in the skirt, whilst also displaying its damaging effects. “
