If you are one of the 768,908,341 and growing Australian design students currently making your way to Brooklyn, listen up. This could be you. Katherine Marvridis is an Australian born knitwear designer currently attending the MFA Fashion Design and Society program at Parsons the New School for Design. Attending on a scholarship, she will be graduating in May 2015. Immediately thereafter, her September 2015 capsule collection will show at NYFW. Here’s a sneak peak of what she’s been up to. This featured collection was sponsored by Mokuba, a luxury Japanese trim and ribbon company. It relies on a new technique developed by Katherine, creating fully fashioned garments entirely out of coiled rope. These shots introduce a ‘first look’ of what’s to come. Needless to say, we’ll be watching.
