There are not many Avant Garde designers in Melbourne who possess the kind of confidence and finesse that RMIT fashion design graduate Christina Exie has. Never a trend-follower, Exie’s edgy and (sometimes de-) constructed garments are created through intensive research and meticulous compositional journeys. She is applauded for her hand stitching and moulding techniques, skills which she mastered whilst working as a milliner for Mariana Hardwick. It was no wonder that her luxe-grunge-with-a-Japanese-twist collection caught the attention of Project Runway 2012 judges who crowned her the winner. All eyes were on Exie this April as she debuted her MBAFW collection in Sydney. And of course, never one to compromise for commerciality, her bold, futuristic and yet still wearable pieces provided a different type of escapism: into the realms of fantasy and sci-fi.
