The storytellers of Australian fashion, Pamela Easton and Lydia Pearsonâ€™s unique approach referenced art, travel, film, literature, music and emotions to create a bold aesthetic characterised by daring patterns, innovative materials, meticulous techniques and a sustainable ethos.
For the first major exhibition from Museum of Brisbaneâ€™s Easton Pearson Archive, we worked together with Pam and Lydia to select the designs they felt highlighted the greatest innovations of their design practice and to share the stories behind the evolution of each garment: the design process, techniques, collaborations, experimentationâ€™s, successes and set-backs.
The garments will be showcased on more than 60 forms in Gallery One, alongside accessories, look books, sketches and range plans.
Slow fashion, sustainability, design practice and experimental future fashion will also form the basis of the exhibitionâ€™s public programs to begin in December.
