Outfit, women's, 'Pant' jacket, 'Fan' skirt and blouse, wool / polyester, designed and made by Denise Sprynskyj and Peter Boyd for their label S!X, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, 2002
This particular outfit was designed specifically for the Powerhouse Museum exhibition 'Sourcing the Muse'. The origins of this exhibition lay with the Museum's rich textile and dress collection and archive and the emergence over the last decade of a new generation of Australian fashion designers whose original and distinct signatures are marked by a knowledge of and passion for fashion and textile history. Eight Australian designers including S!X were invited to look through the Museum's textile and dress collection and select an items or collection of items to use as a source of inspiration for a new work they created for the exhibition. The exhibition showcased the Museum's extraordinary collection through the hearts minds and vision of some of Australia's formost fashion designers. In the process it gave the Museum's audience the chance to access the often elusive world of a designer's creative process, where they seek inspiration and the process that takes then from their source of inspiration through the design, manufacture and creation of a new work.
This outfit was designed and made by Denise Sprynsskyj and Peter Boyd for their label S!X in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia in 2002.
