TURLAND AWARD 2022
The winner of this years Turland Award, Patricia Gonclaves, grew up and currently lives in Poole. Patricia has a BA (Hons) Fashion from the Arts University, Bournemouth. The winner was selected by members of Poole Maritime Trust committee from seven nominations. Patricia was nominated for the award by Elena Crehan, Senior Lecturer. Patricia has created a contemporary streetwear collection for both men and women based on her experience of childhood epilepsy.
“Brainwave” is a luxury streetwear collection that provides a sense of comfort, protection and functionality. The purpose of the collection is to raise awareness for the lifelong impacts of epilepsy and how restricting it can be. Her research began by investigating the condition’s medical history and safety precautions associated with seizures. Consequently, silhouettes have been informed by photographs of comforting childhood memories and studies of hands. A sense of touch and safety can be implied from images where arms are wrapped round one another. The collection was selected to show on the catwalk at Graduate Fashion Week.
