Monique Duggan is an emerging womenswear designer with a focus on digital textiles and graphic print work. A recent graduate from the University of Technology, Sydney, Monique holds a Bachelor of Design (Hons) in Fashion and Textiles. Her dynamic aesthetic is achieved through a synthesis of pattern cutting engineered print design, an exuberant colour palette and bonded fabrics sculptured to perfection. Monique aims to continue to challenge the use of unconventional materials and digital print design within her future garments.
Inspired by the perceptual distortion present in the work of 1960’s artist Bridget Riley, OPTIC is a dynamic print-led womenswear collection which combines minimalist shapes with oversized proportions. Translating the pioneering visual approach of Op-Art through re-interpretation of graphic line work, hand developed artwork and an exuberant colour pallet, OPTIC is a clever synthesis of print and pattern cutting.
