Neo-romanticism, metamodernism, futurism, adventure, nature

Wanderlust explores the speculative narratives of modern women inhabiting outdoor environments. It experiments with modular designs and utility wear using reflective materials, wool and weather-resistant textiles. Bold, synthetic colours are paired with landscape hues, soft knits and plaid prints exploring themes of Neo-Romanticism and nature. This fashion project presents a playful and feminine spirit and appeals to the sensibility of rediscovering the world through a new innocent and naive lens. The exploration of wool in this collection has been made possible by the generous sponsorship of Australian Wool Education Trust (AWET).
