I am excited to show you the Kathleen Berney Desert Group.

I have developed the prints on these garments from a painting I did and  then developed into large wall pieces.

The  work began as a large piece of cardboard that I dragged through the bush over rocks and charred remains of wood. I then painted with watercolours and ink over the initial ‘bush imprints’. I took lots of photos of parts of the painting, basically deconstructing it into smaller panels, and then eventually reconstructing the deconstructed images in a different way and digitally printing on silk.

I have always loved cutting up and reassembling fabrics in various ways. I always feel more fluidly creative thinking in panels and squares.


So …..that is the background to this limited edition of the Desert Dress.


The dress is straight with an extended shoulder. The print is on silk crepe de chine and the black panels and neck bind are viscose. Please note the fabric has no stretch.

Can also be worn  as a long line tunic over our narrow leg black pants.
