Nessie Croft is a freelance fashion practitioner currently based in Melbourne where she has recently completed her final year in the RMIT Fashion Design BA with Honours program.  Nessie has been focusing on developing her textile-based practice, which explores the relationship between materiality and the wearer creating outcomes that challenge the viewer’s perception of traditional textile appropriation. 

 

Her graduate project [Jacque] and previous work are a reflection of a continuous research project based around the investigation of up-cycled fabric’s and their relationship to the wearer. Her practice hopes to explore socially constructed boundaries towards discarded cloth to create outcomes that generate emotional connectivity with an aesthetic that encourages longevity.
