About Sharka:
Sharka is an experienced fashion designer and teacher, she has worked on projects in Australia, the Czech Republic and recently in Madagascar. Sharka established her self-titled fashion label in 2011 focusing on creating garments and small objects of adornment. She has collaborated with numerous artists in a fusion of diverse art forms, ‘creating fashion that moulds to the character and stories of our bodies’. In Madagascar, Sharka established a textile workshop with the local women. Her efforts uncovered the potential of traditional embroidery techniques in a contemporary framework. By tapping in to the power of clothes, sustainability initiatives and the slow fashion movement she was able to create direct changes in the community. Sharka says ‘I love the craft of the traditional cultures. It’s so important to keep it alive, particularly in our industry. We also have the opportunity to change people’s lives’.
