For Boy George
From 2018 to the present, I have been commissioned by the performer Boy George to make wearable art. From interpreting some of his personal artwork to clothing, using freehand machine embroidery, to beading faces of his favourite people for a bespoke suit. George is hands-on with his approach to style and together with his Creative Director William Baker and Costumier Stevie Stewart (Bodymap) we have been making highly individual outfits for him to wear on his Life Tour (2018), The Voice Australia (2018 and 2019) and various television appearances.
