For Us By Us – 2010
For Us By Us was a collaborative project between 24 fashion design students and 6 local emerging artists. Inspired by the work of each artist, the designers created garments from recycled clothes over a term length, with the outcomes exhibited in fashion film. The premiere of the works took place on the 29th of October, 2010 at the Tribal Theatre in Brisbane.
The collaboration was documented through film exploring the themes of (1) creative capital and popularity in fashion and art and what cross-disciplinary collaboration offers in this respect, and (2) the viability of a raw creative economy in underdeveloped cultural hubs like Brisbane.
This project was created by RaraCurio and Vegas Spray, in cooperation with QUT Creative Industries and numerous other central figures to the local and national creative sphere.
