Country Road Group menswear brand Politix has collaborated with RMIT fashion student Amy Gwak to launch two shirts featuring her designs. 

As part of an annual program between RMIT and Politix, Gwak was selected from a group of 30 of her fellow students to collaborate with the brand. 

The program gives aspiring fashion students an opportunity to showcase their designs, with the winning student getting their work printed onto Politix shirts. 

Gwak's two winning floral designs are both hand-drawn with watercolours, manipulated and digitised via computer, and printed onto slim fit, cotton-textured shirts made from 100% BCI cotton. 

Gwak said she was excited to see her designs being worn in public. 

"I appreciate the opportunity I was given through the RMIT and Politix project to create my shirt designs and have them released into the world.

"Holding the shirts with my design for the photoshoot campaign was especially fun.

"I am so thrilled to see my designs get used and worn by people," she said. 

Gwak added that she is looking forward to extending her skills further with Politix. 

"I would like to learn and challenge myself to explore more in the fashion industry and am taking my placement with Politix in February.

"I’m looking forward to learning and improving my skill sets through real industry experience," she said. 

Gwak's designs are available now on the Politix website and in select stores. 

Each shirt retails for $149.
