llani Creative is a new wearable art brand from Australia that is groundbreaking and forward
thinking, by using recycled and disused materials—such as VCR tapes, plastic, tyre tubes, fabrics and wire................
to create visually stunning and beautiful garments.
Claudia has over 20 years experience as a mixed media artist, she has designed and created artworks for private commissions, nation artists, 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. Claudia also runs her own art and fashion business llani Creative, creating wearable art garments for fashion shows and shoots.
"One of my passions as an artist/educator is to infuse in my work and my teachings how to create with discarded items"
While Claudia is Brisbane based, her garments travel all over the world for shoots and shows.
Claudia enjoys working in collaboration with individuals, organisations, schools and community events– asking the question:
“What are your waste materials?”
with this answer Claudia designs and creates one off pieces.
"What I love about creating works from recycled materials is the garment and art piece really
challenges people’s perception of art, fashion and recycling.
When I tell people the bodice is made from
soft recycled plastic, they really can’t believe it.”
