Kat Pengelly - Ballarat

Kat Pengelly creates wearable art. Her label ‘Koshka’ is a creative force of Art Fuelled Fashion. Kat’s most recent contract was to design and create costumes for Lyric Theatre’s production of CATS which was performed in March at Her Majesty’s Theatre, Ballarat.

Kat’s work blends many art forms with clothing – sculpture, digital art, video, music, dance, tattoo engraving, performance art and theatre. She also produces and directs her own original fashion concept shows which surprise and inspire. “Feeling the Ceiling –Fashion for Rock Climbers” (2011), included a stilt walking satyr, aerial acrobatics and opera singing. In her more recent show, “Fashion for Funerals and Fantasy Eulogies – Putting the FUN into Funerals” (2015), the audience was invited to ponder the reality of their mortality and fabulous funeral attire under the sparkle of a 4ft disco skull ball.

Venue: The Mining Exchange
