The New Brief

Dresses make up of a quarter of Australian wardrobes, the largest quantity of any item, and yet they are the least worn of any item (Khan, Shaw & Bandara 2022).

The Dress Audit Survey was the first phase of my PhD project – a digital  wardrobe study – that asked participants about their most and least worn dress. The findings helped to formulate a new design brief that could helpd to increase the active life of dresses.
