I worked with a group of international students to create unique paper dresses for a catwalk at the City of Melbourne Lord Mayor’s Welcome.  The dresses were inspired by the students experience of moving to a new city. Their fears, excitement and triumphs provided rich source material to express in a 3-d form.

The students worked in teams to create four ambitious designs. Many had no making skills to begin but lots of enthusiasm to present themselves in a positive light and dispel stereotypes in a creative way. A couple of the outfits were featured on the cover of MX newspaper.
