कैनबरा / Meeting Place
Canberra, October 2020
The Meeting Place collection encourages cultural exchanges by experimenting with drape, silhouette and patterns found in the Asia-Pacific region.
Symbols and lines adorning each garment celebrate the sharing of wisdom through oral-culture, when knowledge was first carved into the ground or objects and then transferred into print.
The rawness and colour of Muga-Tassar handwoven silk represents the sand or earth on which these symbols were first drawn and remain a consistent foundation in the entire 2020 collection.
Meeting place hopes to remind people of the sacred role of creation, and that each shared story contributes to the diversity and cultural understanding of the environment they inhabit.
