I lecture in fashion design and research in The School of Fashion and Textiles at RMIT University in Melbourne, Australia (afs.rmit.fashion).

I like collaborating and am interested in what materials and relationships can emerge in communities of human and nonhuman people.

I am currently undertaking an ethnographic documentation project supported by The British Museum in which I am documenting knowledge related to paper clothing in Japan.
In my research and design practice at the moment I work with handmade Japanese paper and garments/products made from paper.

My interest at the moment is in storytelling and documentation in various formats including film, drawing, text, audio, etc.
