WHAT RELATIONSHIP DO YOU WANT TO ESTABLISH BETWEEN EACH GARMENT AND ITS WEARER?
'I would like for them to treasure it. People just don't value their clothes anymore, nowadays we would rather buy 10 pieces of cheap clothing as it's just so easy, rather than buy one piece which would make us really happy and which we would keep for life, mending it whenever there was a problem with them. I would like to see people making better decisions. As designers we have a responsibility to think about what we are using to make our clothes.'
