I, like many others, I suspect, never fully understood what textiles designers do until I had the opportunity to see their work more closely while at uni. Yes, they screen print & dye & know how to knit better than most people, but it's so much more than that. Skilled illustrators, masters of colour & texture, creators of entirely new aesthetics in fabric and beyond. TwentySeven, the graduate exhibition of students from RMIT's textile design course, is not only beautiful but educational, showcasing a vast array of techniques & approaches, each as unique as the designer behind them. On display until Wednesday December 7th it really is a must-see, particularly if you think that garment designers are the only ones who make fashion...
