Spring Summer 2016 Runway Looks
“My graduate collection is inspired by my father‘s story. He was diagnosed with liver cancer and had an operation last summer, my memories of him in hospital are black and white. The wound of this experience is healing with time; and this hope in life is represented through the colour green. The black jacket is my favourite piece. There are zippers to connect pieces together, like an open wound healing. The silhouette was developed from the liver’s shape.
“I was listening Jake Bugg's music as I was drawing during my design process, he brings something special to me. "Clash hailed the 'precocious talent fusing retro folk with blistering contemporary rock riffs. While my personal story inspires me to work out a garment for my boy, his song is one of the element which recreates a world with him.”
