The practice has been set up as a slow fashion business that paths a way for alternative fashion systems and production. It is experimental in its structure.
The techniques of deconstruction and up-cycling have been at the centre of my fashion practice for the past 11 years. Over this period I have experimented with up-cycling as a way of reusing, making and producing fashion. My motivation in employing this method has been to re-define
the negative connotations between aesthetics and the term sustainable.
Aesthetics, creativity and sustainability can co-exist and this continues to motivate my practice. Sustainable fashion is not optional, its integral and the future of our industry depends on it".
