Cut/Cover is presented as part of the Virgin Australia Melbourne Fashion Festival’s Cultural Program Project Series.
Cut/Cover looks at two actions – cutting and covering/wrapping. It aims to illustrate not only the physical process of these actions and their fundamental role in fashion, but more so their metaphorical connection and differences across culture and identity.
Covering – masks, costumes, veils. To protect, heal, cover, disguise or hide.
Cutting – to construct and tailor. To break open, challenge, reveal or move forward.
Curated by Laura Thompson, Bachelor Science (Scientific Photography) and Masters of Arts Management, the exhibition features work from RMIT graduates Chantelle Lucyl Tarola, Bachelor of Fashion (Design) (Honours) and Gabrielle Leah, Master in Fine Art. Douglas McManus, RMIT teacher in Textile Design and Development, will also feature work in the exhibition.
