WHAT IS YOUR INSPIRATION FOR THIS SEASON’S COLLECTION?
The Power of Colours!
The Collection is a celebration of life and happiness, influenced by the designer's roots and her heritage. A mixture of old craftsmanship combines with her signature textile design to create a bold and confident look. The idea was born out of the previous collection which focused on monochrome, and was designed in aid of supporting people with cancer. The power of colour in contrast is a celebration of joyfulness and fulfillment which keeps in line with the brand's core values: celebrating every single minute of life. Be the passenger, not the driver- stop waiting to live! The collection holds a vision of a strong woman who makes conscious choices which enable her to live happily, live fully and celebrate real values.
