Victoria Bulmer

MA work

My garments and accessories are the results of my investigation into sustainable denim. I have been exploring knitting using recycled jeans and the manipulation of the denim through bleaching and laser-cutting processes. The outcomes are garments and accessories for men with astonishing colour and texture. As well as being craft based, my work also explores multimedia processes such as print, photography and film.
