Open studio: Alice Sutton (EDITION Studio) + Phoebe Porter (Jewellery Pop Up)
EDITION began during Alice’s final year of studying Fashion at the Canberra Institute of Technology in 2011. Alice has been working in Canberra since then and currently has a studio in Waramanga. Each EDITION collection explores sustainable design and zero waste pattern making. Alice’s zero waste pattern making called ‘Selvedge to Selvedge’ and has informed the design aesthetic of EDITION. A key aspect of the design process is uncertainty as the final garments silhouettes are determined in the process not through drawings. Through each collection the EDITION label evolves and the unique, multi functional garments create a new language for sustainable design. All EDITION garments are Australian made.
Alice will have her new collection as well as samples and older garments for sale as part of her open studio. Visitors will be able to come and see where Alice makes patterns, cut garments and sews them.
