Vanessa Duque completed her Bachelor of Fashion Design Honours at Colegiatura Colombiana in 2012 and subsequently worked at a number of Colombian denim labels for three years. Her practice reflects on and responds to how the conception and definition of denim garments are affected through industrialisation and consumption. Vanessa’s work also expands the collective imaginary of denim in contemporary culture, and experiments with ways of developing denim by creating new links between the traditional use of denim and its possible aesthetic derivations. Vanessa Duque is currently completing a Master of Fashion (Design) at RMIT University.
