Award-winning designer and artisan Susan Dimasi is the Creative Director of fashion house MATERIALBYPRODUCT (MBP). She established the brand in Melbourne in 2003 and has consistently delivered collections, described by fashion commentators as “a seamless blend of fashion and art”, ever since. Dimasi’s work is informed by her long apprenticeship in men’s tailoring; consequently, signature stitching and constructed tailoring details are continuing themes in her work. In line with couture traditions, MBP does not compromise on materials, time or custom fitting. Attention to detail is paramount, even in ready-to-wear items. Dimasi has an unapologetic commitment to exquisite materials – silk crepe, wool felt, and featherweight leather.
