Miranda has a particular focus on exploring digital textile printing design and design methodologies. Coming from a fashion industry background, Miranda has worked as a senior fashion designer for commercial New Zealand companies and designed for her own independent women’s wear label. Highlights have included developing wholesale relationships with NZ and Australian boutiques. Her practice morphs across fashion and art practices, with a conceptual label ‘Superfluous’ which explores experimental approaches in design.
Her academic research is prompted by an investigation and inquiry into redirective design processes and future fashion systems. Of particular interest is exploring the creative application of contemporary and traditional textile processes with new technologies and a participatory approach: hacking, glitching and subverting jpegs to create new imagery and dialogue. Miranda holds a Diploma in Fashion and Textiles, a Master of Design with distinction, and a Master of Philosophy with first class honours.
