UCA 2021 graduate showcase #UCAgrads2021 🎓✨ BA (Hons) Hand Embroidery for Fashion, Interiors and Textile Art final year student, Millie Grace Whitehead has completed her graduate collection and here is her fantastic campaign video! Influenced by gender, fluidity and movement ‘Beyond the Binary Wave’ is a culmination of both traditionally male and female traits. The collection is a celebration of blurred lines between genders. The combination of masculine tailoring with traditional embroidery techniques creates a juxtaposition between these two crafts, both traditionally associated with differing genders. A blend of established embroidery techniques used in a contemporary context; this collection speaks for itself as a modern and forward-thinking art form.
