  • The aesthetic premise of this final collection is illustrated by an experimental approach to material and colour, portrayed through the craftsmanship of embroidery. The embroidery takes a slightly unusual femininity premise. Whilst it obtains a romantic nature, it also shares an eclectic elegance that blends tradition and innovation, attempting all the time to create something striking out of the quirky geometric illustrations. This later enables a range of possibilities with an almost avant-garde feel. A firm rigorous approach to detail attention within each piece celebrates an unpredictable use of materials.

    The textiles often take a slightly unconventional approach to structure. I then use my illustrations and embroidery sampling as an exaggerated guideline to the shape and form of how we might wish to dress. The basis of the textiles is to explore self-awareness and the proximity connection we have with our clothes through the elaboration of a couture collection.
