Project Rundle - The Myer Centre
We chatted with Che' about her design for Project Rundle.
Which Adelaide laneway/arcade were you given for Project Rundle?
The Myer Centre.
Describe your garment and how The Myer Centre influenced the design? What was your inspiration?
My outfit is a fitted dress which ends just above the knee. It contains three main colours - cream for the top, bronze for the bottom and olive green as a pop colour. The dress has quite big sleeves made out of chiffon and has a unique stepped triangle design line on the front and back. My main inspiration was the Myer Centre’s art deco architecture and the outside silhouette, especially the top of the main entrance. The olive green, cream and bronze of the Myer Centre significantly influenced my design. In addition, I tried to capture the Myer Centre’s timeless and classic style, while still appealing to modern tastes.
Tell us about the highlights and challenges of Project Rundle.
The main highlight was making a dress I am really proud of and getting a change to use something such as the Myer Centre for inspiration, which I probably wouldn’t have considered before. The challenges of this project were making the dress. Lines and angles look a lot easier and smoother on paper than they are in re-create on a dress!
