MA work

My work deals with the narrative that I create to inform my garments.

The Final Collection - A Gardening Nightmare - is inspired by the illustrated story of the same name that I created especially for this project (a small part of which has appeared in Tank magazine). It is a fusion of ASBO chic and Elizabethan corsetry. With cascading, spiralling pleats falling like petals over the garments.
