I’m a contemporary fashion designer with a focus on womenswear. My personal interest in interior design has heavily influenced my designs in shape, colour, print, fabrics and techniques.
My work builds a connection between furnishings and fashion, maximalism has been a huge trend in interiors throughout various moments so bringing this to a fashion perspective has given my collection a ‘newstalgic’ feel. End of roll upholstery fabrics have been exciting to work with as the challenge of limited amounts of each material and sourcing complementary fabrics have been a great contribution to the creative process and limiting my impact on the environment.
My final collection is an homage to my Nana. Old photographs of her in her home sprawling across decades inspired me to draw ideas from an eclectic mix of interiors; her bold floral prints, clashing carpets and rich textures were an initial inspiration for my collection and feature heavily throughout. Using deadstock upholstery fabrics from local outlet stores and donated lace, this collection brings a new, exciting lease of life to fabrics otherwise destined for landfill.
