Beautiful clothing and accessories by local Curtin University of Technology fashion and textile design graduate Emma Hunter of Piesse Brook will be on show at the Prelude Exhibition that will run from Thursday 4 September to Sunday 7 September in Northbridge.
Exhibition Coordinator Ms Jessica Judd said Ms Hunter is part of a cohort of six Curtin fashion and textile graduates exhibiting at Prelude that will be open daily from 11.00am to 4.00pm upstairs in Gingers Garage.
“The Exhibition will blur the boundaries between art and fashion and promises to be a prelude to the future careers of talented young individuals like Ms Hunter,” Ms Judd said.
“Emma has an exciting future ahead of her and people will be intrigued by her range of stylish creations.”
Prelude will be officially opened by Curtin Vice-Chancellor Professor Jeanette Hacket.
Emma Hunter graduated with a Bachelor of Arts, Fashion and Textile Design, 2007, and is currently developing her own label, eclare.
“My label eclare encompasses not only clothing, but accessories, stockings, and a range of soft furnishings such as lamps and cushions,” Ms Hunter said.
“I am working predominantly on ‘one off’ creations and doing all the design work and manufacture myself by hand,” she said.
“As a designer I am excited to create beautiful things and very pleased to be exhibiting at Prelude.”
Prelude will also feature works by Elise Capelli, Gabrielle Watts, Amy Clarke, Sophie Webber and Tasha Vener plus images by contemporary emerging photographer Patrick O’Brien who documented the designers’ creations.
The free four-day exhibition is a fringe activity to the 2008 Perth Fashion Festival Cultural Program. It is supported by Curtin through the Office of Alumni Relations, by the Department of Culture and the Arts through the Young People and the Arts funding program, and the City of Perth.
