An itinerant childhood made Julia Bridle accustomed to change and impermanence—literary works of fiction became a constant influence and a driving force for her creativity. From a passion for visual arts and fantasy, Julia’s work focuses on the transformative aspects of design through imagined identities at the intersection between costume and fashion. Julia’s Masters of Fashion graduate collection centres on an exploration of ‘The Fashion Monster’— analysing aspects of sustainable practice through the creation of a fictional monster composed of monstrous fashion practices. Julia’s work flips the script on ideals of fashion by focusing on the ugly, undesirable, disagreeable aspects of the fashion industry in the creation of a speculative other in fashion.
