My vision aims to integrate fashion with Inuit culture and styling influences from apre ski. The silhouette evolved from the shape of the amoutik, the capacious parka worn by Inuit women. Combining tight clothing with oversized layering develops a comfortable style of effortless design, where you do not have to think about what you wear. An exploration of seaweed encapsulates the palette of colors within the collection, and the unusual shapes in the plants provided the knitted stitch and personal style of fringing.
