Grace Alateras’ fashion practice specialises in menswear with a particular emphasis on the concept of branding. In her work, the “logo” is disseminated through surface detail, fastenings, accent colours, text and styling.
The fusion of sportswear and traditional tailoring is fundamental to her design development and is used to reconceptualise modern street wear. She is greatly inspired by youth culture, particularly the way in which they interact with commercial brand’s; communicating their aspirations, beliefs and interests through dress. Quality construction, considered detailing, textured fabrications and a high level of finish are integral to Grace’s design process and outcomes.
Gabrielle Alateras completed the Bachelor of Fashion (Design)(Honours) at RMIT University in 2016.
