Born in India and based in Melbourne, Srinvanti Roy was educated at the National Institute of Fashion Technology Bombay. Since completing her undergraduate degree, she has worked with Converse amongst other brands, where she gained industry experience before embarking on her Master of Fashion (Design) at RMIT. Her research-driven project is based on the principles of art therapy. ‘Use of Textiles in Art Therapy’ explores rhythm and repetition, and how these concepts can manifest in textiles and garment making, and formed through a process that creates garments that generate rhythmic responses in our body and the use of clothing for therapy.

Wominjeka (Welcome). We acknowledge the Yaluk-ut Weelam as the traditional custodians of the land on which we meet. Yaluk-ut Weelam means ‘people of the river camp’ and is connected with the coastal land at the head of Port Phillip Bay, extending from the Werribee River to Mordialloc. The Yaluk-ut Weelam are part of the Boon Wurrung, one of the five major language groups of the greater Kulin Nation. We pay our respects to the land, their ancestors and their elders—past, present and to the future.
