"I regard fashion as something that expresses how we are part of everything around us, connected to the past and shaping the future. I aim to create garments that are determined for actual wear while being objects of cultural and intellectual significance."
STILL garments was conceived as a result of her trip to Dhaka and Rangpur in Bangladesh. The label follows the slow fashion philosophy: Sticking to its own aesthetic, the collection will grow organically, adding a few pieces and evolving others. Up-to-date zero waste pattern cutting is combined with ancient textile techniques and natural piece-dyeing of the finished garments, resulting in STILL garments signature textile surfaces. STILL garments strives to create long lasting favourites that make you feel & look good. They offer comfort and don't neglect functional details such as pockets while offering a contemporary high fashion design. As a plus, most tops and jackets are designed for multiple wearing options - the jacket is reversible, tops and dresses can be worn back or front for a different colour or cut.
