Shaun Andrew Mills

BA (Hons) Fashion Design and Promotion | Class of 2020

In my work, I am inspired by the LGBTQ+ community, and youth culture. This means that my work is colourful, vibrant and modern. Drag queen costumes and outrageous street-wear for gender non conformists are my main interest and my goal is to create a brand that focuses on those themes. My work uses colour and print to create something that will stand out in a crowd. Screen printing is my preferred technique because it feels more organic and personal than digital print which is something I like to achieve in all of my work. I have used illustration and print design to showcase a collection intended for pride festivals and drag performers. I have explored the concepts of freedom of expression and individuality in an attempt to encourage people to have fun with fashion and be who they want to be.
