The Art Of Wearable Waste
llani Creative is a new wearable art brand from Australia that is groundbreaking and fashion forward, by using recycled and disused material to create visually stunning and beautiful garments for events, music videos/performances, fashion/hair editorials and film.
The artist behind the brand is Claudia Williams and her brand "llani" comes from her family name "Castellani".
The WOW factor is what Claudia aims for when creating works from recycled materials, as the garment and art piece really
challenges people’s perception of art, fashion and recycling.
"As artists and designers we make things to inspire people, social and environmental issues go hand in hand when creating. It's a platform to voice, explore and discover.
For me, it's about creating with recyclable materials, wowing my audience and giving reuse a DELUXE finish while sending a message to
REDUCE, REUSE & RECYCLE"
Claudia has 20 years experience as a mixed media artist, she has designed and created artworks for private commissions, public art, school based projects, solo and group exhibitions, conducted workshops, participated in artist-in-residence programs, and has been a mentor for the Flying Arts program for the last 6 years.
While Claudia is Brisbane based, her garments travel all over the world for shoots and shows.
Claudia works in collaboration with individuals, organisations, schools and community events to create one off unique pieces.
