This urban warrior womenswear collection takes inspiration from warfare, medieval armour and traditional crafts. Using a combination of leather, metal and bondage rope, I designed garments that contrast strong materials with a modern, feminine silhouettes. Medieval construction scale-mail and traditional European 4-1 chain mail weave techniques, together with macramé, have been incorporated into my garments. Working intuitively on the stand and exploring techniques of craftsmanship are key to this collection and my practice.
