About The Fold
Year after year, stories unravel and the process of making unfolds at a different pace. The studio breathes a continuous flow of energy, rhythmic vibration and passion manifest in the students' works, each one unique and special. Shirts, trousers, jackets, as stereotypical symbols of dress codes are re-articulated through the designer's imagination and craftsmanship, challenging the past and positing visions of the future.
The Fold brings forward an understanding of a continuous process in fashion. Each season emerges from the previous one through a process of folding and unfolding from the old into the new. Each idea exists as threads woven within the wider fabric of fashion inspired by Deleuze's philosophy of The Fold, a body of infinite folds and surfaces that twist and weave through time and space.
The Fold 2018 is an annual exhibition by the final year students from the Diploma, Bachelor of Arts (Honours) and Master of Arts programmes. Showcasing the works of students from Design, Fine Arts, Film, Media Arts, Dance, Music, Theatre, Art Therapy, and Arts Management, The LASALLE Show exhibition 2018 marks the grand finale of an artistic education in creativity and imagination and the transformation of these young talents into professional artists in the larger creative industries ecosystem.
