Jas­mine looks into crys­tals

Southern Gazette (Belmont) - - NEWS -

FOR­GET tra­di­tional tex­tures – the out­fit Jas­mine O’Brien created for her role at this year’s Tel­stra Perth Fash­ion Festival in­volved grow­ing crys­tals in a stove­top pot.

The Kens­ing­ton res­i­dent was among the fash­ion de­sign stu­dents honoured at the Fu­ture Run­way and Next Gen­er­a­tion held at Fash­ion Paramount Op­tus Sta­dium on Wed­nes­day.

Ms O’Brien won the wear­able tech­nol­ogy cat­e­gory for her de­sign called Te­trab­o­rate, made from sodium te­trab­o­rate crys­tals and cured by hand.

“Dur­ing the process my crys­tals grew and I let na­ture guide my process in the in­tri­cate shapes, for­ma­tions and tex­tures that evolved,” the South Met­ro­pol­i­tan Tafe stu­dent said.

The wear­able tech­nol­ogy cat­e­gory re­quired stu­dents to be in­no­va­tive and in­spi­ra­tional in their de­sign, and look be­yond day-to-day fab­ri­ca­tions for their de­signs.
