OTAGO POLYTECHNIC CAPSULE COLLECTION
Andrea Leigh is an experimental textile designer based in Dunedin.
Her newest collection Kelxos combines the use of translucent silicone latex in an organic process, with pretty pinks and subdued tones; to evoke a nostalgic memory and experience of a childhood daydream.
Klexos has been born out of a desire to keep memories of the past alive and to bring new meaning and context to painful experiences, to shine light in the shadows of grief. Andrea Leigh explores and creates intuitive textiles that embody strong emotions and personal narratives.
Klexos 17’ has been created in loving memory of her father and the feeling of vulnerability that is present when dealing with the loss of a parent.
