My collection is aimed to empower the wearer, showing a love for life and style as well as being able to move.
It is inspired by the modern-day woman and her chaotic lifestyle. She juggles a family, career, social life, relationship, health and fitness and aims to look good while she’s at it!
I focused on feminist artists and themes of sport. The concept of casual-wear was brought in to aid her hectic lifestyle and a focus on ‘support’ led to my interest in shaping the figure, in particular around the bust. As the sport theme took shape, it began to influence what fabrics I used. I experimented with wools juxtaposed against silk jersey and shell-suit-like silk taffeta, giving it a fresh, urban look.
I’m bored of throwaway fashion. We only have one planet and we should all be looking for innovative ways to safeguard it. We should aim to shop for classic items. Love it, work it and reuse it!
Be it Illustrating, designing or making… I am happiest when being creative.
