Designs can vary from conceptual sculpture, illustrated fashion designs, animated videos (we have a projector!), clothing designs, print, photography, fibre art, a sketch of machine that makes an amazing costume, its up to you! Admissions may include designs made previously or specifically for the exhibition. We look forward to seeing how you plan to clothe Canberra!
