Shelley Fox....

Philadelphia Florist, 2008.

Shelley Fox is internationally recognised as a directional and conceptional designer, Fox is one of a rare breed of modern designers renowned for her innovtive use of materials, manipulation of fabric and the developtment of unorthadox pattern cutting. The resulting designs re-define how clothing can be worn, constantly questioning conventions of practice. her work explores unusual and arresting themes. On both technical and conceptual levels. Scorched felted wool and burnt cotton bandaging, the use of lazer beams and sound waves that stirke the cloth with 'invisible heat', negative imagery printed onto fabric, the use of brail markings on boiled wool and morse code communication are all examples of her past work.
