1. Fashion is a language as well as a form of activism.
Conceptual pattern cutting, imagery, text and a thorough understanding of material and drape are used to build a subtle form of communication.
2. Collaboration promotes new ways of thinking, making, representing and consuming
This is a meeting of the wearable, the surreal, the imaginative and the mundane, the thoughts, emotions and ethics that make us human.
3. Imagination, intelligence and integrity are essential, beauty and humour appreciated.
4. Music is an integral part of our world.
Each collection is accompanied by an original piece of music.
