Kat Pengelly creates wearable art. Her label ‘Koshka’ is a creative force of Art Fuelled Fashion.
With a background in Fine Art, Kat’s fashion collections enter the world via art galleries and theatres. Her artistic label was unleashed at the Art Gallery of Ballarat with a solo show and performance called Launch Pad. A capacity crowd was in attendance and the gallery acquired one of Kat’s garments for their permanent collection.
Kat’s artful fashion incorporates sculptural and image making processes and are often presented as performance art. Her favorite artistic expression is to create thought provoking Fashion Concept Shows. The collaboration required to execute such events is a source of inspiration for her.
A successful applicant of many grants, Kat has received significant funding from the Regional Arts Fund, administered by Regional Arts Victoria to produce her shows called Feeling the Ceiling – Fashion for Rock Climbers (2011) and Fashion for Funerals – Putting the FUN into Funerals (2015). Both of these performances were premiered at the Nati Frinj Biennale.
Kat is currently refining Fashion for Funerals – Putting the FUN into Funerals to present the show in Ballarat this November. For further information on this please return to the home page.
