Suzy Gilbert - Textiles

“For as long as I can remember I have been driven to create things, physical things, useful things, beautiful things. In the early 1970s I ran a small business in the emerging King William Road precinct. I majored in crocheted garments and wildly vivid enameled cuff-links which also sold to other craft shops and Rundle Mall stores. After experiencing the market scene in London I also embraced the experimental Melbourne Street Markets for my work. Four years in Shanghai lead to my label Shanghai Suzy. It was at a time when young artists and designers had found a freedom of expression and ways to flourish, enabling a highly optimistic ‘we can do anything’ environment. My focus is now driven by a passion for felting combined with natural dyeing, creating personalized and individual garments, or ‘wearable art’. Shanghai Suzy values the unlimitedness of imagination. And that’s my joy of life as a creative.”
