THE SUM OF ITS PARTS

Fashion Film

The Sum of its Parts explores the intersection of identity and physicality through the lens of skin and body part transplant. Latex, mesh, soluble thread and non-wovens are used to weave the intricate tapestry of visual metaphor to broach the question: how much can you lose before you lose yourself?

The collection challenges the distinction we place on one another— are we really individuals or just beings ultimately connected to one another? Do we lose our identity by the stripping of our physical body that is then transplanted to someone else? And the age old question of, who am I? Am I merely the sum of my parts?

EU ADORO VOCÊ (I ADORE YOU)

Fashion Film

One chance encounter could change your world. A story of boy meets beautiful, quirky and slightly-narcoleptic girl. 'Eu Adoro Você' is a narrative fashion film that interweaves the 'image' of style with a sweet and nostalgic tale of love and innocence.

A concept piece that showcases the encapsulation of a specific client's 'image' and branding within a visual narrative medium.

 
 
 

THE LEVIATHAN

Fashion Film

'The Leviathan' serves as a parable of the inner-struggle of identity between the conscious and the unconscious-self lurking within the fathomless of depths of the abyss of the sea of the subconscious. Hidden, powerful yet ever present this deep dark presence churns the salty brine of our deepest and darkest thoughts; rippling unbidden to the glassy surface of the waking mind.

Juxtaposed with monochromatic garments, and set against the unforgiving landscape of Melbourne's Black Rock Beach, this visually moody tale plays out the silent war between the inner-self.
