Collection 001


Contemporary architecture: colours, geometric shapes and surfaces are the source of inspiration for this collection of knitted garments.


My observation of an architectural space led me to design fabrics with elements such as colour blocks, transparent surfaces and pleated ribs. These interpret the contrasting textures, overlapping and layering of surfaces, which are then engineered and constructed around the female form by means of bodycon garments for a sporty yet feminine look – luxurious in details and finish.
