Fashion – The Feminine Off-Piste

In my final year of study I have focused on expanding and renegotiating conventions of women’s ski apparel through conceptual design. My work finds a foundation in feminist phenomenology and aims to enable a fully embodied experience for women in motion.

The Feminine Off-Piste collection brings together technical apparel, abstract art, and avant-garde fashion to place women at the design core of their gear. Bold box pleats hover and flex around the body, sketching out the muscle memory of downhill skiing, leaving a physical trace of euphoric movement. This collection aims to uphold femininity on the ski field — in all its in nite expressions.
