Hola! I'm Megan, an Australian textile and apparel designer. My work celebrates a freedom of spirit and joyful sense of discovery. My textiles draw inspiration from the hand-rendered aesthetics of eras bygone, along with an enriching appreciation of world culture and the natural world. I design for longevity utilising regenerated and recycled materials in apparel, to reduce impact and protect our planet. Designing for change and incorporating sustainability into my practice is key.
After completing a Bachelor of Design Hons at UNSW, I began my journey in graphic and textile design, followed by apparel design and creative direction for Rip Curl Girlswear and an assortment of other youth labels. I have since worked with several international textile studios where my works have been presented and purchased at Premiere Vision New York, Indigo New York, Printsource New York, Surtex New York, The Los Angeles International Textile Show, Premiere Vision Paris, Eindhoven Netherlands, Heimtextil Frankfurt and Indigo Home Brussels.
I currently enjoy creating for eco-minded folk from my home studio along the Wadawurrung coastline. Recent collaborations include textile design for ocean protecting label, Boardsox, print and consult work for eco-ethical labels, ArtxSrubs and Sustainable Mumma, as well as the design of textiles and swim/active-wear for enviro-conscious labels, Salty Beasts and Less Mondays More Summer (launching soon). You can also find me lecturing and tutoring in Design Skills at Deakin University, Waterfront campus.
