RKD X SQUID JIG SHIRT
My 'squid jig' pattern design is inspired by countless camping getaways in some of South Australia's favourite fishing and squidding spots, full of sparkling water, sunshine and crazy-coloured jigs! I couldn't resist bringing the pattern to life and, with the help of my mum, made this colourful button-up shirt. Camping weekends are my favourite way to relax and spend time with my partner, Dylan, who also makes a great model!
RKD X GOLDEN WATTLE TOP
The sight of golden wattle flowering at the beginning of spring has always stirred something in me. Perhaps it is the rich yellow, or the fact that the tree becomes covered in tiny pom-poms. Maybe it's just because it signals the start of the warmer weather here in South Australia. Whatever it is, it excites and inspires me and I have done countless sketches and paintings of the native plant. In this case, a pattern was created and printed on beautiful muslin fabric. My mum and I then made a top that has become a wardrobe favourite. It's so bright and floral, I simply can't be sad wearing it!
