Wearing The Interior City

Students from Monash University Art Design and Architecture (MADA) have created 11 works of wearable architecture for the 2015 Wearing the City project. The project challenged students to reinterpret Melbourne’s iconic interiors, from the historic to the contemporary, at a scale for the human body.

This year, a group of architecture and fine art students worked with architect Cate Hall and fashion designer Miriam Borcherdt to design the pieces. Geometric forms were a common feature among this year’s projects, with many of the architectural hallmarks in the interior spaces echoed in the costume designs.

Students compete head-to-head in a catwalk contest at MPavilion, Saturday 14 November, 5–7pm to be judged by a panel of multi-disciplinary jurors. A winner will be announced on the night.
