PFF presents Banshu Fashion Textile Program Exhibition

The 2012 Banshu Fashion Textile Program assisted five WA fashion design graduates to enter the professional market by providing them access to the Banshu textile industry in Hyogo. Banshu textiles are distributed to high-end design houses worldwide and are renowned for their traditional production method, which creates elaborate woven patterns with dyed yarns. 

In March 2012, the Program supported five graduate designers to present their work to an international fashion audience. Travelling to Nishiwaki, Japan, they worked with the Banshu textile industry to develop the production of their winning textile designs in collaboration with distinguished Japanese textile company Ozawa Textile Co. 

Perth Fashion Festival runs from 19 - 25 September 2012. 
 
The Program participants also had the opportunity to meet and work with Ms Makiko Minigawa, who is the Managing Director and Director of Design at the acclaimed Japanese fashion house Issey Miyake. 
 
Perth Fashion Festival 2012’s cultural program will see the winning designers - Jade Facchin (Kensington), Ellen Lund (Morley), Cynthia Chong (Willetton), Imogen Duxbury (Bayswater), and Jameen Zalfen (Highgate) - exhibit their final garment designs, which reflect on the work they completed in Japan.  
 
Highlights of the exhibition will include Jade Facchin’s colourful tribal inspired garments. “My textile design has been inspired by the power of the Hmong traditional embroidery techniques.  I have been interested in the meaning their embroidery designs bring to these traditions, a contemporary approach to the application of embroidery in dress,” said Jade.
 
Imogen Duxbury describes the opportunity. “The Banshu Fashion Textile Program is such a wonderful opportunity for new designers to experience a part of the fashion industry that we are rarely exposed to at such an early stage in our career. It gives you an idea of how big the fashion industry really is; it makes you feel like there are so many opportunities out there if you’re willing to find them and it’s very exciting.”  
 
Jameen Zalfen’s monochromatic textile and leather garments have been inspired by cross sections of bones which have been translated into a scaled up pattern, stretched across the fabric.  Jameen says of the experience, “I was especially impressed by the Japanese textile industry; they’re so unique in their approach to textile design and production. They have such a wealth of tradition and experience to draw on and almost a reverence with which they create their finely crafted textiles. However, not only do they draw on tradition they also seek ways to be more contemporary in a competitive market, it’s a very inspiring way to create.”
