Shimmering and Dirty, 2018

 

This collection explores how I relate to femininity. The garments combine two contrasting elements of womenswear: lingerie and tailoring. Traditional pieces are deconstructed and reassembled, as well as being reimagined in unconventional fabrics. Use of fabric plays an important role in subverting traditional ideas on femininity. Those fabrics traditionally associated with femininity and fragility such as lace and tulle are combined with harsh synthetics and leather to create a juxtaposition between delicate and hardwearing.
