My work often reflects and conveys a message relevant to today’s society to create fashion which excites and inspires people. Using fabric and pattern manipulation to create a clean, modern yet original aesthetic which is wearable for all women.
My graduate collection reflected the way in which our fast-paced society filled with the use of constant technology is overlooked by the Amish community, who are incredibly strong in upholding their traditions, morals and values. With so many distractions in our fast-paced society it was refreshing to see a community so dedicated to staying with their beliefs. The collection contrasted from traditional Amish attire, by creating six complete looks in contrasting prints using their complex quilting patterns with traditional silhouettes. The collection emphasised their beliefs of how beauty is a part of function. Creating a message of holding on to your traditions whether it may be new or old. It also translated the importance of community and sticking together in these difficult times.
