Fashion – fortune favours the brave

‘Fortune favours the brave’ is an ode to the Adventurers: to the brave, the untamed, to those who feel the fear and do it anyway. It is a ballad sung in layered, lush textiles; in patterns and colours to bolster the spirit; in soft, luxurious, natural fabrics to soothe and satisfy even the most voracious pleasure seeker.

The experience of the wearer is of primary importance in my work. I am a designer, but I am also a weaver, and this allows me more scope to craft the tactile experience of the woman who wears my clothes. The clothing she wears should complement her life, both in its practicality and wearability, and in the way the clothing makes her feel.
