Katrina Wilson will need to approve that you worked on “MA Collection” before we add you as a collaborator.

MA Collection

Inspired by photographers Mario Gerth & Hans Silvester’s stunning documentation of African tribes.
The collection was all about capturing the energy and spirit of the community, taking inspiration from how skin was used as a canvas for decoration. Body paint was very free and spontaneous which inspired my hand drawn, digitally rendered prints onto stretch tulle to create a tattoo skin effect when worn. The collection also included a lot of knotting and draping, experimenting with how fabrics react when knotted and how this can be used to wear clothes in interesting ways.
I collaborated with a Maasai woman, Rahab Kenana, from Kenya to produce the beaded jewellery pieces, bringing the clothes to life by adding new dimensions, textures and colours to the collection.
