Contradicting craftsmanship battle at one another. Fluid drape of silk jersey is creatively cut and seamlessly combined with innovative tailored structures. order is unexpectedly mixed with chaos and the silhouettes appear protective as well as revealing.
Various shades of black engulf the collection evoking a sense of loss & despair. Metallic tones lift the shadows resembling a sense of hope & light.
Unique garments have individual personalities & characteristics including sustainable zero-waste garments. The box dress holds all the emotions locked inside its angular &rigid structure, The dislocated coat has is named because of the weighted shoulders falling forwards in frailty and deformity, & the inside out dress wears all of its seams and inner construction on the outside to be made visible for all to see.
Exquisite fabrics include lacquered woven wool, printed silk jersey, leather, silk organza and British heritage merino wool.
