There is something very authentic about dry-land Australia, with its warm earthy hues, its boney yet triumphant ability to keep growing in the harshest of conditions. These characteristics make me feel that I am finally home.
I breath in this clean, authentic air and I dream.
I was inspired by this precious land to create the RUGGED collection. Frays and ruffles seemed appropriate representations of the ancient landforms that I have been immersed in, while journeying out west.
Natural dyes are used when possible throughout the collection to imbue the garments with the scents and colours of the Australian landscape, while a team of local seamstresses sews up each piece individually, keeping alive the ancient art of couture.
