Susan Dimasi believes the purpose of clothing is to immerse its wearer in an experience, as opposed to using it as a route to validation from others. She formed her Melbourne-based label, MaterialByProduct (MBP), in an effort to redefine clothing as “compositions in space.” Embarking on a collaboration with choreographer and dancer Shelley Lasica, the two hope to epitomize this idea in what is described as choreography of the wardrobe. Here, two distinct languages overlap: the movement of a body in space, and the overlay of material which conforms to that body. Through this project, Dimasi sees her vision of clothing that highlights and caters to self-confident and socially assertive women coming to life.
