What inspired you for your fashion collection?
‘Oxidation Spring/Summer 2015 was inspired by the organic forms and textures I found around the farm from the rusted tin sheds, twisting tree roots, shredding bark and the rugged wood piles.

Why do you think fashion prints are a good element to have in your designs?
I think they really create an amazing point of difference from other labels, can add another dimension to your range and allow you to express your design style.

What inspired you for your fashion collection? My collection is inspired by ww2 special forces camo that I have collected from all over the world. Russian and Finnish ww2 snow camo played important roles in designing the final collection; also Whoopi Goldberg which is more of a political statement.

What inspired you for your fashion collection?

I was inspired by block printing and traditional Indian printing techniques. In particular I was draw to the motifs and techniques. I looked at a lot of Anokhi collections and researched how they printed their fabrics. Anokhi is a brand in Indian that has its print factory based in Jaipur, they still use traditional ways to dye and print material. They use traditional prints on contemporary silhouettes.  My collection has contemporary prints and silhouettes while acknowledging Indian traditions.

Why do you think fashion prints are a good element to have in your designs?

I think they enhance the design greatly while communicating the concept of the collection. Prints also unify and integrate the individual pieces to the concept and the collection as a whole.
