Flaunter Emerging’s Faces to Watch: Kat Walsh

These are the faces to watch, the future of the Australian fashion industry. Introducing Kat Walsh, 2015 Graduate, QUT.

It’s incredibly validating to produce work that other people want to wear, so being approached after the graduate show by people who are as excited about the collection as I am has been my highlight.

These are the faces to watch, the future of the Australian fashion industry. Introducing Tom Summers, 2015 Graduate, QUT.

My most exciting moment to-date (although it was a rather long moment) was my semester-long student exchange to The Swedish School of Textiles in Borås, Sweden. I got to learn so much more about textiles, and the possibilities available with a variety of textiles, that has really helped to inform my design practice.

These are the faces to watch, the future of the Australian fashion industry. Introducing Kirsten Hughes of Saint, 2015 Graduate, Whitehouse Institute of Design.

We were always creative types, but ended up spending some time working in ‘sensible’ careers after school (Dean in Finance and me in Sales & Marketing). I think we both just reached a point in our mid twenties where we could no longer suppress the creative urges…

Introducing Sally Corben, 2015 Graduate, Fashion Design Studio.

I’ve been working with silicone throughout this collection and it’s a completely new material for me so it’s definitely been a learning curve! All my prints have been done completely by hand using palette knives, spoons, hair combs, you name it. So when I’m standing in front of pearly white, finished cut pieces and I’ve got a brush full of black paint in my hand, trusting my intuition and knowing that it will all work out has been important!

These are the faces to watch, the future of the Australian fashion industry. Introducing Zoe Efstathis, 2015 Graduate, Whitehouse Institute of Design.

I love designing for women like myself, women who love to experiment with their fashion and wear their clothes like a badge of honour. One of my favourite Australian designers is West-Australian designer Jaime Lee. I love her use of textile development. She’s is a breath of fresh air in the fashion industry. She has fun with her collections and it shows!

These are the faces to watch, the future of the Australian fashion industry. Introducing Kirsten O’Dowd, 2014 graduate, Melbourne Fashion Masters.

I had always had an interest in fashion and had taken sewing classes in high school and loved them. However I was dubious about trying to make fashion my career…fashion/sewing was my hobby and what if I sucked at it in the real world?!  I ended up walking into my very first class and immediately feeling like I was absolutely supposed to be there.

These are the faces to watch, the future of the Australian fashion industry. Introducing Ahmad Taufik, 2015 graduate, Fashion Design Studio.

I grew up surrounded by tailors, pattern makers and machinists but never thought that I’d work in the industry. I was always making garments but was never formally ‘taught’ so I decided to apply to FDS and have never looked back.

These are the faces to watch, the future of the Australian fashion industry. Introducing Sofia Moreno-Marcos, 2016 graduate, QUT.

I didn’t own a sewing machine until 2013, before then all my designs were completely hand stitched (crazy huh!?). So after a year of teaching myself how to sew I decided this [fashion] was exactly what I wanted to do for the rest of my life.
