Nina Sepahpour is a textile designer from Melbourne who works with both traditional and digital techniques. Using elements of collage, layering, and pattern making Nina’s art is experimental and abstract. Drawing inspiration from her environment and everyday life, she explores layers of pattern, shape, and colour across a range of media.
Working from her studio in St. Kilda, Nina has witnessed firsthand the effects of homelessness and poverty in her community. She hopes her support for charity OneVoice can help restore basic dignity to those with access to hygienic necessities most of us take for granted.
Nina has designed three socks for our 2018 range, with $1 per pair supporting charity partner OneVoice.
