Jedda Bahloo — Scrap Trench, 2022
Jedda Bahloo (she/her) is a Naarm based multidisciplinary artist and designer who is passionate about creating social change through fashion, art and textiles. She aims to incorporate elements of waste, modularity, functionality, emotional durability and mending within her work to critique how fashion (the entire industry & mode of production) impacts the world around us. With this in mind, Jedda explores ways in which “sustainability” can be defined, questioning the capacity for ‘sustainability’ to exist within the fashion industry’s current production model. Given this focus on sustainability, Jedda prefers to utilise scraps, toiles and materials that would otherwise be discarded and transforms them into well made wearable garments and pieces of art.
