MA work

My love has always been for art, creativity and imagination, which is shown through my work and achievements to date. My collection is inspired by the works of MC Ecsher and the way he used optical illusions and mysterious imagery to produce imaginative, interesting and surreal pictures.

The collection takes on a tailored approach containing garments beautifully illustrated and designed in the finest detail. Every inch of the garments have been considered carefully, from the double yoked back, to the spidery lapels that seem to grow around the shoulders coupled with pleated backs. Fabrics are a blend of herringbone and pinstripe, loosened up with silk and matt jersey.
