MOTHER & MODE

Research for the collection uncovered the designer’s grandparents skills as knitting, smocking and cobbling and inspired her aim to create a collection with a deeper, sustainable bond between people and their material things. Silhouettes were inspired by the comforts of home, with a focus on trans-seasonal timeless pieces. Mother & Mode is a poignant reflection upon family, family history and crafts passed down through generations. Its slow-fashion pieces speak of fragments of memories and handmade processes, as a counter to over-consumption. Combined with natural fibres and quirky silhouettes, this collection challenges the users’ relationship with clothing through an exploration on how emotional connection can lead to garment longevity.
