“My collection researches the works of H. D. Thoreau combining outerwear aesthetics with elements from Renaissance garments, made from deadstock, handprinted with water-marbling and screen printing. Imagine a character who leaves society, to become one with landscape and wilderness – not to escape, but to find reality.

Thoreau’s meaning of “No Man’s garden” is the true awe of being on the verge of something new and undiscovered. For me, it must be now.”
