Next we have Georgina Craig from Roseville College in Sydney with her untitled design. The dress base is made from a plastic BBQ cover. Shoulder and hip pieces were shaped from paper mache. Georgina was inspired by two bioluminescent animals – a fish and a comb jelly. They prompted her to include the colourful materials on her shoulders and back. See the pegs, broom, kitchen scourers, shower scrubbers, and embroidery threads. There are beads, led lights, industrial stickers, floor matting and duct tape too. Georgina also incorporated shapes from the inspiring animals. The brooms on the hips reference the fins of a fish. The tasselled details at the back reference tentacles. They drop from a vinyl belt around the waist. Georgina aimed to convey a sense of the way that the jellies move, by the materials that hang from the shoulders and waist, to trail and flutter behind.
