    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. Rahab was a very inspiring person to collaborate with as she supports women in rural Kenya by teaching beadwork skills and providing opportunities for local women to find work.
