Dear Shaded Viewers,

Olubiyi Thomas’ Mainline  “Autonomy” collection seeks to deconstruct questions of masculinity, femininity, diversity and sustainability. “Acting in accordance with objective morality rather than under the influence of desires.

“This season, I’ve teamed up with 2 local artists and a local weaver to create 4 new and innovative textiles. I approached local weaver Kirsty McDougall with the idea of using my off-cuts to form a new textile, which has inspired her to spawn ‘Reweave’.
I worked with artist Holly Vaughan to transform her photolithography prints made from film stills into fabric, which we then worked into with hand embroidery giving the textile a 3 dimensional quality.” by Olubiyi Thomas
