A collection inspired by the delicate, decaying imperfections of nature; craquelure, rust and gum tree bark have provided significant stimulus for digital drawings. These digital drawings have been pertinent in creating jacquard designs; comprising of bold and contemporary pieces, intended for high end womenswear tailoring during the season of Spring/ Summer 2020. Fil coupe, tassels and floats are key elements of this collection; with bold and bright detailing also taking the forefront. The colour palette central to this project includes neon orange, lilac and navy.
