Jackets and coats are what delineate and characterise the female form. Classic men’s fabrics, brocades and velvets, mixed with ethnic patterns, weaving and embroidery ... Think collars, sleeves, buttons ... the detailing is what counts. They’re often designed to be reversible as well!
I stay in close contact with the market here in my home town and with global markets. The feel, quality, colour and pattern of the textiles is what I’m looking for when I search out and choose fabrics, the material that I love; that’s what inspires me. I’m a huge fan of traditional and modern printing, weaving and fabric dyeing techniques. Blending them into a piece of clothing is what I do for a living.
