MA Fashion work by Romilly Quay

My work aims to find a fine balance between concept, creative instinct and craft. My interests lie in making things that are interesting and beautiful as objects as well as being wearable garments.

Inspired by the methodologies of conceptual fashion design, in particular the work of Maison Martin Margiela, I have taken inspiration from visual artists such as Alberto Giacometti Eva Hesse and Anselm Kiefer, who use the sculptural qualities of materials to create works that have a powerful sense of presence.

My masters project is a process based investigation which explores a minimalist aesthetic, combining traditional tailoring fabrics and methods with an unorthodox approach to silhouette and cut. I have developed my own approach using a mix of flat pattern cutting methods and three dimensional draping techniques to create new and unexpected shapes.

I have also been working with photographic images of aspects of my environment to develop digital prints that are ambiguous yet evocative.
