Ruvini is a Sri Lankan fashion designer who explores design through experimentation, developing techniques that affect and enhance garments’ materiality and construction.
Wanting to broaden her exposure, Ruvini undertook RMIT’s Master of Fashion (Design). Six years of industry experience and three years of teaching design has informed her research throughout the masters project and beyond.
In Ruvini’s practice, materials and garments are enhanced through pleats, folds, fused cardboard structures, anchored and cascading pleats, alongside metal wires and bead details. The series of garments explore the movement of the body, while intensifying the structural effects through contrasting monochrome and multi-coloured graphics.
