My work is concerned with capturing and reinventing. Placing importance on the emotional power of colour, I design in a manipulative and diagnostic fashion. I begin with a photograph or collage, in which I then trim, twist and pinpoint details: creating a window for my personal perspective and abstractions. Vacillating approaches between modelling three-dimensional forms and drawing.My current fascinations lie within the therapeutic aspects embodied in the art of dressing. The universal anxieties and changes that have arisen from Covid-19's disruption have influenced my work providing a mindful quality to my designs; through empathetic and grounding textures and tones. I hope for my designs to be a welcomed sensorial escape for the wearer. As well as a tool to feel empowered to step outside of their comfort zone and cope with our unpredictable world. They are a reaction to our current time but also a nod to a slower and sustainable future, within fashion and beyond.
