Rite of Passage
‘Rite of Passage’ draws inspiration from three separate locations: Dungeness in Kent, Tresco on The Isles of Scilly and Covehithe in Suffolk. My Spring/ Summer 2017 collection, intended for high-end fashion, embraces the magical journey I experienced growing up within these highly visual landscapes.
Using a range of luxurious fabrics this collection combines a mixture of silkscreen and digital print processes to produce a personal fashion collection full of contrasts. My prints intend to illustrate the unusual beauty of each place that makes them truly unique and enchanting. Hand-painted techniques and drawings are engineered to mirror the juxtaposition of geometric and organic elements found within each of these three settings, which have been so influential on my life and work so far.
