All while keeping colour palette, state of mind; current trends are set not followed. I drawn my inspiration from many places and cultures. As my experience in the fashion industry and passion for design. Fashion to me is an expression as much as an art form. Creating a surge in people, empowering ideas and ways of self-expression. Consistent, as a form of identity and individualism. For years I have had a fixation on design and the interplaying relationship between the emotional effect it has on people and the world at large. Forgetting the functional aspect and the role it plays. Expression through design; of garments, has fuelled me creatively I’m an eclectic person, open to new avenues.
