“The collection began from a place of gratitude. Gratitude to everyone who’s helped, the ones who stayed when they didn’t have to”
The Designer says he didn’t have to look for inspiration as he was surrounded by it. He also notes the collection means so much to him.
The collection is a mixture of fabrics ranging from hard to soft. A notable fabric that runs through every piece is wool.
“Wool were used as decorative buses that elevate some of the looks. A standout design is a brick patterned fabric – a reference to the strength and protection which bricks provide”
“The emphasis and symbolism placed in the clothes denote a direct appreciation to everyone who’s supported me over the years – to my family, friends & acquaintances”
