One of the designs by 2020 Fashion Graduate Isabelle Cull from her collection Reverie

Isabelle Cull has recently been recognised for her 2020 Graduate Fashion Collection with a piece from the collection set to be displayed at Indooroopilly Shopping Centre during January 2021.

The daughter of well known Gympie and Rainbow Beach couple Mark and Mary Cull, from Channon and Lawrence Dental, Isabelle has just completed her four year Bachelor of Fashion Design (Honours) degree at the Queensland University of Technology.

She said “Rainbow Beach was a haven for me during the unsettling time of Covid-19 when universities went online. I escaped the city, coming back to my home region and the peacefulness of the beach environment.

“Luckily though QUT re-opened and I was able to head back into the studio to finish designing and creating my collection, Reverie.

“Reverie, defined in relation to my collection, means; to daydream, to be lost in thought. The idea of escaping reality into a dreamscape inspired by my childhood home of open fields often sprinkled with wildflowers was the initial inspiration for this collection.

“This concept was realised through light-hearted feminine pieces which explored traditional techniques such as quilting and hand-painting to create slow, refined and meaningful commercial looks.”

Isabelle aims to work for an Australian label so she can learn how to successfully build a brand and create effective designs and hopes to one day launch her own label.
