'Dysfunctional Beauty' is a playful collage mixing knitted drapes with distressed tailoring. Men’s style trousers and oversized jackets have been distorted and rearranged to fit the feminine silhouette.
"Within this collection, I strived to turn an ancestral technique such as hand-knitting into a contemporary means of expression. I want to offer a new vision of craft by trying to bring it somewhere new whilst creating a singular sense of beauty and desire."
"I am driven by the desire to provide my work with a memory and a “soul”. Inspired by my fear of wearing vintage pieces, I see clothes as relics from our past and evidence of our existence."
