Pattern & Print: Easton Pearson Archive
Pattern and Print: Easton Pearson Archive is a celebration of the internationally acclaimed fashion house Easton Pearson.
About the exhibition
This exhibition showcases a selection of vibrant garments that highlight the technical innovations, bespoke fabric, distinctive prints and embellishment choices of the fashion house. Easton Pearson collaborated with individual artists and artisans to create unique designs which ranged from colourful Indian beading, to designs painted by hand directly onto a finished dress.
The garments in the exhibition are complemented by a custom mural by Brisbane-based painter, illustrator and long-time Easton Pearson collaborator, Stephen Mok. Stephen hand painted patterns onto garments, decorated accessories and props for the runway and created window designs for the label’s flagship Brisbane store.
