Once is the title of my work for the Common Threads Wearable Art Awards, part of the Stretch Festival in Mandurah. A couple of weeks ago our garments were modelled, professionally photographed and judged. I am thrilled that my garment has been selected for the showcase presentation for the garment finalists in May. Wearableart1Wearableart2Normally I wouldn’t show full photographs of my work until after an exhibition opening, although for this event we have all been given the photographs to promote the show. You can see my and all the other garments on pinterest at:


“Once” aka Gloria (as she is like having an extra body around the house, takes up a whole seat in the car) was entered in the Eco Wear section, the overall theme for the event is “Drift”. She is made from LOTS of tea bags, jeans, and the sterile fabric used to line surgical instrument trays. Once is the use and lifespan of many of the items in our lives today. The by-products of manufacturing processes and discarded items now drift through our waterways.Wearableart4Thank you to the gorgeous Taylor for being a fantastic model.
