Australian-Russian designer Natalie Vladimiroff began work on her thesis by looking at family heirlooms of photographs and embroideries. The heirlooms represent a history of handcraft and making in her family. She feels connected to them but also culturally disconnected from growing up as an Australian with a Russian family.
Her collection was a juxtaposition between the valuable and invaluable, the precious and non-precious, the personal and impersonal creating a thesis that was vibrant, simple, yet fun. Each design was a collage of layers, bright colors, and free-flowing silhouettes making for an extraordinary collection.
