Mixed Tapes at NGV
Currently on show at NGV in Melbourne is an exhibition which looks at the creative collaborations between artists,designers ,musicians and whoever was around during the early eighties in Melbourne.The NGV holds over 100 piece collection of clothing & paraphernalia from my extensive collaboration with Bruce Slorach from 1983-1994 under the labels Sara Thorn ,Shrubbery, Abyss, Galaxy,Funkessentials & Konka brands. This outfit is a mash of prints actually never designed to be worn this way but hey history/herstory now...!
Fast Forward to present day!
