With a Bachelor in Graphic Design and Branded Fashion, Joel Dunkley is an emerging designer with a focus on upcycling deadstock to create custom garments, under his newly co-launched label, Imbue Collective.
Lost & Found
Lost & Found is the latest menswear collection for Imbue Collective. With a combination of up-cycled and deadstock designs, this collection is inspired by the lost property box, embracing the chaotic nature of found fabrics and up-cycling. Curated chaos is at the heart of this collection; vintage-inspired styles with a contemporary eclecticism.
Natural Fibres Ekka Fashion Student Design Competition
As one of the student designers selected to participate in the Natural Fibres Ekka Fashion Student Design Competition initiative, this project was inspired by the Enchanted Winter theme. Drawing inspiration from fairytales, the idea of a modern huntsman with an enchanted twist was portrayed by contrasting workwear dungarees with soft fabrics and colour schemes, achieving a mixture of masculine and feminine aesthetics.
