I squeezed in a visit just before this show finished, on Saturday 14th March. It was at the First Site Gallery, run by RMIT Union; and was part of the 2009 L’Oréal Melbourne Fashion Festival Cultural Program.
As the exhibition media states: “The representation of flowers and botanical imagery is an enduring theme in fashion and textiles. In Bloom showcases the talent and craftsmanship of RMIT students and recent graduates as they explore the floral subject and form across a diverse range of mediums.”
There were some truly beautiful works here. Some of my favourites are below.
‘Explosion of Life’s Soul’, Roze Bohun
‘Moonlight Garden’, Melinda Brack
‘Jasperware’, Suellen Entwisle
