Silk linen matka jacket and wool crepe pants. The design is meant to use waste from garment production by repurposing fabric scraps to create a new textile.

The jacket features a wrap-around collar, oversized zipper, slouched exaggerated sleeves and a zippered flap pocket. All surface treatment was done by hand, one stitch and loop at a time.

The inspiration is based on nature and the human imprint on the environment. The garment represents destruction and regrowth in the hopes of bringing awareness to man-made pollution on the planet.

I believe luxurious fashion does not have to originate solely from new materials. There are many ways we can creatively reuse and repurpose what we already have in the hopes of minimizing the impact that we make on the environment. When I design, I think about both wearability and longevity of the garment. I’m very much into outerwear and jackets, so I always knew that sportswear would be my specialization of choice. If I were to describe my design aesthetic in two words, it would be “City Cool”.  It’s like streetwear meets luxury, but with an edge. As a very meticulous person, I pay close attention to quality seaming and believe that the devil is in fact, in the details.
