It's becoming more and more common for fashion designers to promote new collections via art exhibitions and installations, blurring the lines between fashion and art and creating events that are likely to attract a wider audience, people who might not consider themselves interested in high fashion.

The latest event to take this approach is Perception, a "playful" and  "unconventional" exhibition of Sydney-based jewellery designer Kate McCoy's latest collection, designed to be part art exhibition, part showcase. Kate takes a less mass-produced, more individual approach to her collections, which are mostly made up of one-off pieces. Her jewellery's made quite a few appearances at red carpet events like the ARIAs and the Logies, and she's got some pretty famous fans, including Kimbra.

According to Kate's blog, Perception was "inspired by a curiosity in human behaviour, a fascination with how jewellery relates to the body whilst it is admired from afar."
