R O S I E K A V A N A V O C H is best known as the creative force behind Kmossed, which combines art and fashion through her practice as a photographer, collagist and designer.
Kavanavoch graduated from Media Arts at RMIT before presenting 'Kmossed' her first solo show of photography, stencil and spraypaint at the iconic Citylights Projects at Centre Place (2007), which featured on Channel 10 and Lonely Planet’s Blue List of the Top 10 Cultural Attractions.
Her next show of large-scale photographic portraits, Platform Shoes (2008), for L'Oreal Melbourne Fashion Festival 2008 was featured on the cover of The Age EG.
After returning from a year working in New York City, she held her next major solo show, this time combining performance with photography and installation, World of Kmossed (2010). She later relocated to London, where she worked with award-winning jewellery designer Jordan Askill (2011-2012),
Since then, Kmossed has taken a new guise: that of the goddess of silk.
B E N D I V A L L is chief whip and art director behind Kmossed, has a background in Asian and European textiles, having worked at national institutions developing collections, researching, curating and producing exhibitions, performance art, and events. He continues to work as a curator of exhibitions, historic house interiors, and fosters contemporary collaborations both in the UK and in Australia. He joined forces with the formidable Kavanavoch in 2014 to bring you the world of Kmossed in its current guise as a manifestation of The Lady of Kmossed in silk form.
Together they work closely on the collections, collaborations, and production of these remarkable limited edition works on silk.
