Allison Claire Murphy
Allison Claire Murphy is from St. John’s, Newfoundland. Learning how to sew and knit in the Textiles: Craft and Apparel Design program, she explores apparel design and knitting to create handmade clothing. Always being intrigued with fashion, Allison wanted to create her own pieces, each carrying its own story. She is excited to pursue her journey within the fashion industry and will continue to create well handled, unique clothing.
Inspired by colour and everyday experiences, each of my handcrafted pieces express these inspirations through apparel design and knitting. Every garment is designed and created with a hand drafted pattern. The outdoors and everyday settings are constantly changing, and this allows new ideas and inspiration for designing. Day to day moments bring me creativity to create garments which carry an inspiration with them. Whether because of the outdoors, a specific colour or a positive experience, all my pieces make their way through a desired aesthetic to symbolize a moment in time.
