Melbourne based textile artist and designer Meg Sears has spent her creative life living in Western Australia, Europe and now Melbourne.
Meg studied Contemporary Fashion and Visual Arts at Edith Cowan University in Perth, more recently Bachelor of Textiles (Design) at RMIT in Melbourne.
Meg’s diverse, sustainable approach to her design work sees her working intuitively with natural dyes and applying fabric manipulation techniques to recycled fabrics and pre-loved garments to create large-scale soft sculptures.
Meg’s digital and surface design for fabrics are designs for lifestyle, creating heavily textured and layered fabrics for diverse application from bespoke fashion pieces to soft homewares and rugs.
Her fresh ideas in design see her exploring new material possibilities as she grows her own Kombucha scoby leather fabric. The unique outcomes aim to question our view of the world, how we produce, consume and the impact our actions have on the earth. The hope is to stimulate new perspectives within these practices, so that we can design sustainably for the future.
