Artist's statement:
"Unconfined lines, strong linear details unified with meandering volumes. The collection ‘Seduire’ took influence from contemporary architecture. Curving profiles, bold silhouettes and detailed construction integrated with historical foundation garments informed a regal womenswear collection with detail through traditional methods of stitch.
Highlighting femininity throughout, I aspired to honour the contours of the female form and challenge the parameters of traditional design techniques."
