My design and material choices represent careful consideration of the environment, the supply chain and the communities I work. I aim to shine a light and expose how an alternative way of producing and consuming fashion is entirely possible.
Directly sourcing fabrics in India and Peru has given me first hand experience finding sustainable and eco-friendly materials crafted by hand. Some of these materials include Lotus, Banana, Khadi Wool and Khadi Cotton. I continuously liase with spinners, weavers, natural dyers and knitters to monitor the progress of collections, from soft wovens and jerseys to hard wovens and hand knits.
Particularly through tailoring and costume making I have discovered the importance of hand finished details and quality control, and how this approach goes hand in hand across all aspects of sustainable clothing and design.
Drawing upon and continuing to be inspired by subcultures and movements that have evoked real change encourages conceptual and thought provoking design and editorial work, to showcase sustainable fashion in its most creative state combining concept and material.
