Continuing our support of the bright young things of fashion, this year we’ve teamed up with Frankie magazine to sponsor the LMFF Metamorphosis Student Showcase. We caught up with the amazingly talented finalists as they get set to hit the catwalk.
Say hello to Sydney-sider Jacqueline and her gorgeously understated designs. The 22-year-old University of Technology grad is set to bring her take on femininity to the Melbourne runway – with new nudes, tonal purples and soft pearlescent details, this is the stuff fashion dreams are made of!
Hey Jacqueline, can you tell us a bit about yourself?
I recently completed my degree at the University of Technology Sydney, where I studied Fashion and Textile Design for four years.
And your collection for the LMFF Metamorphosis Student Showcase?
The collection is a spring women’s wear range based around a nude colour palette with hints of soft pearlescent and tonal variations of purple.
How would you describe your style?
Natural, understated, feminine.
How does it feel to be a showing your collection at the LMFF?
I’m very excited to be chosen to show my collection at L’Oreal Melbourne Fashion Festival. It’s really nice for your hard work to be recognized outside of university!
What’s the inspiration behind the collection?
My collection was basically my interpretation of what the contemporary cyborg should look like. It’s a portrait of the contemporary woman and a reflection of the relationship between cyberspace, the body and the machine in the 21st century.
Who or what is your biggest inspiration?
My mum is my biggest inspiration. She is an entirely self taught seamstress, knitter, quilter and super mum.
What’s your dream job?
I would love to work in high-end or couture textile design.
