EVERYTHING IN BETWEEN

Travels to Japan and Takashi Murakami’s superflat art movement are the inspirations for this ready-to-wear collection for women. EVERYTHING IN BETWEEN explores the blurred lines separating 2D and 3D categories with print, silhouette, and embellishment. Heat transfer vinyl provides crisp graphic prints and outlines, while laser cut perspex gives a 3D element to some 2D prints. Noting the Japanese cultural appropriation of Hawaiian motifs, Cameron has recontextualised these elements with a superflat pop art aesthetic that emulates the hyper-colour and bold forms of Murakami’s work. Other references include 1960s archetype garments, the art of Andy Warhol and Pop Culture.
