Sophie Crotty is a Melbourne based fashion designer, who has recently graduated from the Fashion Design Honours programme at RMIT. Within her practice she has taken on the roles of creative director, stylist, photographer, and designer.

As a designer she aims to leave a art of herself within the collections she creates whether that’s through the uses of her own identity and culture as a reference, or through the use of hand techniques as seen in her honours collection titled, reconnection. With her bi-racial heritage and upbringing in both East Asia and Australia, correct representation of culture based aesthetics remains an important part of her practice and becoming the focus of her honours thesis. Among other issues, sustainability is also at the forefront of her current practice with aims to design, construct and communicate in a way that focuses on responsible consumption and production.
