Deirdre Hoban’s debut collection for Spring Summer 2-011/12 has been a long time coming.
After studying Interior Design, Deirdre went on to study Fine Arts at Monash University majoring in Metals and Jewellery by hand in her Fitzroy Studio. Now focused on the materiality of her design , Deirdre uses porcelain, silk natural rope and sterling silver to create her unique and enigmatic designs.
The Axiom collection is the outcome of a collaboration with Melbourne fashion designer Livia Arena. Influenced by each others aesthetic sensibilities, the two worked together on creating the colours, shapes and patterns that are now evident throughout their respective, mirrored collections.
The large scale pieces are designed to heighten the awareness of the wearer of their own body and the environment in which they exist.
