One of my very favourite people @kevinajosmith has been creating an amazing, gigantic artwork at her artist residency in South Korea - and took her upcycled @akubraofficial hat with #madebythehalcyonfox handwoven band to keep the sun out of her face. I’ve stolen a few photos of Kevina (and bb Aida) working hard over the last few weeks - follow @kevinajosmith to see how her incredible installation turns out!! Super proud of her ❤️ 🌈 🦊 #upcycledart #upcycledfashion #installationart #upcycledmaterials

Lately I've been making things entirely of reuse materials, collecting bright colours anywhere I can find them, like a psychedelic bower bird. For this piece, titled The Nonconformist, I've cobbled together bits and pieces from op shop dresses, old curtains, the unused end of one of my handwoven inkle bands, etc. I was going for Mrs. Roper realness, an ode to the misfits who are larger than life and don't play it down for anyone. Thanks so much to @adamjamesk for the photo, and to @platformgalleryco for being amazing as always 🌈 🦊 #madebythehalcyonfox #mrsroper #sustainablefashion #zerowaste #bluemountainsartist #australianfashiondesigner #vintagefabric #allthecolours #kaftan #mumu #mightbemadeofyouroldcurtains

I’m the only one in the studio so far, which means dancing like an idiot while Metric blares and working on this little day-glo cape. This is what I do with your old curtains - one set from @reversegarbage and one from @salvosstores. Sustainable = fun! Oh, and if you want a handwoven southern bow tie, tell me your favourite colours and I’ll whip one up for you... #madebythehalcyonfox #sustainablefashion #bluemountainsartist #nautistudiosbluemountains australianfashiondesigner #handmade #superherocape #inkleweaving #southernbowtie #makingtextiles

Made in my fancy new studio - a #wip I’m thinking of as corporate poncho...kinda quilty, kinda pixelly, totally office-job appropriate. Made from fabric sample books full of the best quality fabrics I’ve ever worked with. Look familiar @auntydoo @kevinajosmith?

Creating an unorthodox, maximalist aesthetic in fashion and textiles, Chrissie is inspired by all things eccentric and full of colour. Combining traditional weaving and sewing techniques with fantastical colours and patterns, her work reflects the uniqueness of the viewer. 📷 thehalcyonfox

A full shot of my piece Spontaneous Chaos. The FloraSensa show asked the artists to reflect on a personal story and us this as inspiration for their piece. This is my story. On the day of my first miscarriage, I returned home from the hospital, sore and sad. At my front door sat an unexpected arrangement of native flowers, sent by a woman I greatly admired. She had been through the same thing - and as I healed, I learned the many miscarriage stories of other women I know. They knew my pain, and their compassion lent a sense of community to the trauma. This piece represents the chaotic confusion and visceral upheaval felt throughout miscarriage, and the peace and strength lent to me by the women who had walked the path before me. #florasensa #madebythehalcyonfox #bluemountainsartist #textileart

A few details from my new piece Spontaneous Chaos from the FloraSensa group show, opening tomorrow @bluemountainsbotanicgarden - invite link in bio! I had a sneak peak at some of the work when I was installing, and there's some amazing textile work to feast your eyes on. I hope to see you there! #florasensa #bluemountainsartist #flowerloom #weaving #textileart #madebythehalcyonfox

Hey remember that photo of me wearing my favourite @garagesaletrail blazer, Sergeant Plum? Here it is being fashionably modelled by War on Waste presenter and former Chaser Craig Reucassel! How good is it seeing these photos come through, @clothjulie? #famouspeoplebewearingstuffimadeyall #upcycle #reuse #madebythehalcyonfox

Wondering about the lucky owner of the Jean Jeanie blazer? Look, it's @vogueaustralia Sustainability Editor @mrspress looking fabulous. Don't buy new, get out on the @garagesaletrail or go to your local op shop and pick up some preloved fashion and MAKE IT YOUR OWN.

This pretty lady is on her way to Sydney into the loving arms of her new owner! She's named Jean Jeanie and she's made of a denim op shop blazer, three pairs of old jeans, and a few additional scraps. She's part seventies funk, part new romantic, and 100% sustainable realness. . Thanks to @scrapclothjulie for including me on this blazer-filled journey (and for the photo) and @garagesaletrail for this awesome, inspiring project and all your great work. #reuse #trailblazers #upcycle #denim #madebythehalcyonfox

Hey look it's Andrew from @garagesaletrail looking just so perfect in the new pearly king blazer I made in collab with @scrapclothjulie and @garagesaletrail! Pretty proud of this one. Made from op shop blazer and millions of buttons from @reversegarbage. #reuse #trailblazer #pearlyking #madebythehalcyonfox

Guys, no big deal, but look, it's deputy Lord Mayor of Sydney @jessmillersydney wearing a thing I made! Part of the @garagesaletrail #trailblazers collaboration I've been working on with @scrapclothjulie, this one's called God Save the Queen, and it's one of my faves. #upcycle #punkrock #somanysafetypins #madebythehalcyonfox
