For me it is crucial how an item of clothing feels when worn. Equally crucial is how it looks from a distance, how it captures & divides space. I have always coveted clothes that hang at the fulcrum of experience & memory - doorways to life lived and senses explored. I’m inspired by the female form, by the movement of the body as it folds itself into new compositions with the cut and weave of a fabric or the fade of a whimsical print. What I seek in the materials I use may be harmony with the body or it may be juxtaposition but it is always a performance, a dance. Ideally with pockets.
