At the Source EXPO, I was struck by the colour and material contrasts of Mia Nesbit’s work and particularly enjoy her gathered and backless dresses made of old shirts and ties- I think wearing one of those would epitomise the ‘play time after work’ feeling. Her pieces fuse recycled fabrics with traditional Malawian textiles and use local Malawian labour in their creation. I am not sure the creations are for the mass market as some of them are fairly daring, however, as an observer they appear as wearable art.
