Introducing the Mixed Voyage exhibition
Two local creatives merge their fields and styles to create an unpredictable result.
As part of Geelong Design Week 2021, a new exhibition is opening in the Sally Walker Gallery at our Geelong Waterfront Campus. The exhibition will be open Monday to Friday from 10am–4pm starting today: Friday 19 March. You can register for a free ticket now.
About the exhibition
The eco-fashion designer Fernanda Covarrubias, along with Architect and Street Artist Noe Mondragon, will create a series of upcycled pieces inspired by the city shapes using only preloved materials, highlighting the importance of sustainable fashion nowadays. The pieces will be complemented with a series of paintings and handcrafted elements, in order to create an installation that will showcase how two completely different creative minds can juxtapose the world of art and fashion.
The nature of the exhibition itself is unpredictable, as two different creatives merge their visions, groundbreaking traditional art and fashion ideas – using several materials such as scraps of preloved fabrics and yarns, recycled canvases and cardboard, unified by urban and textile paintings.
Fernanda Covarrubias is a Mexican eco-fashion designer and slow fashion advocate with more than 13 years of experience. Founder and owner of The Second Runway blog that promotes sustainable fashion and styling, she also runs an independent clothing label that bears her name, is based on upcycled materials and is 100% Australian made.
Noe is a Mexican street artist, architect and urban designer with more than 10 years of experience. He is inspired by cities and their infrastructure, captivated by the complex role that graffiti and street art play in modern societies.
They aim to leave a legacy of questioning the structure of conventional urban art and fashion exhibitions by creating new ways of designing.
