Titled 'Lady of Dead' it does sound morbid but the AW12 collection was inspired by the Mexican festival 'Day of the Dead' which is a happy and colourful carnival celebration.

Fabrics used: silk jersey, silk chiffon, silk crepe de chine, basket weave silk, silk satin and a knitted silk and alpaca blend.
A fun and edgy collection.

Inspired by the life of a geisha, the collection explores their rituals and kimonos. Fabrics include velvet, lace, tulle and leather in a colour palette of grey, blue grey, dark blue, white and red.
 Her signature tassling brought delight to the simple shift dress.

The inspiration was drawn from the beauty of the ancient Balkarians. Prints transform traditional Balkan imagery into digital prints on silver organza. Oversized square shoulders mimick the traditional Burka coat worn by the men.  The delicate silver string embroidery was created in one of the villages in Upper Balkaria. 
Colour palette of soft biege, cream, silver grey, brown and navy. Fabrics: cashmere, silk and wool jersey.
A combination of modern and tradition styles to create strong feminine and elegant pieces.
