Emily is a writer and interdisciplinary artist from Brisbane. She combines her formal training in design with a critical interest in the political forces of fashion that shape our lived experience. Her practice explores the complex relationship between fashion, sustainability and female identity using fabric, thread and secondhand garments. Embracing garment construction techniques, weaving and embroidery, her practice conveys a tenderness for the materiality of clothing.
Emily is also a product owner for Mastered, an education studio that provides skills development to top talent at the world's best luxury fashion and beauty companies, leading projects with Stella McCartney and LVMH. She also writes for fashion criticism publications. Emily is affiliated with the Queensland University of Technology as a sessional academic.
