Our tutor Meg Parry is the founder and Creative Director of Meg Parry Studio, a fashion design and production hub. The studio recently hosted an open studio independent event as part of the Virgin Australia Melbourne Fashion Festival 2019.
The aim of the event, Inside the Workroom, was to celebrate their making process and encourage people to learn more about the work that goes into making a garment. This event was an incredible opportunity to visit Meg’s personal studio and co-working space.
The designer and maker is aiming to open up the conversation about the way people wear and value clothing. With potential to collaborate with creatives worldwide, Meg hopes that promoting a positive, mindful approach to clothing will influence the choices people make when purchasing what they wear.
Meg believes there is an ever-growing demand to nurture both small start-ups and established fashion brands. The conscientious creative studio values the control they have over their product design and being able to customise it to suit the wearer. Utilising this creative control, they can provide the client with a product that has a touch of personalisation, however, is also relevant and contemporary for the modern woman.
