In this final year collection, the concept explores key themes throughout the history of mountaineering on Mt Everest, juxtaposing tweed and tailoring with 80’s silhouettes and technical details.

Pioneer x Berghaus
This collaboration takes the design identity seen in the main collection and utilises the key elements of the Berghaus brand, creating an avant gardeyet sporty twist for Spring Summer 2019.

This capsule collection for Spring Summer 19 takes its inspiration from the 2017 indie movie Beach Rats. Endless summer vibes with an over-sized sportswear  silhouette take center stage, whilst the intense bright lights of the Luna Park direct the colour and print.

My design philosophy is grounded in my love of juxtaposition when forming a new creative concept. I relish in uniting two contrasting notions and fusing their distinctive attributes together to craft a fresh take on subjects.  Historical and cultural references are of particular interest to me and are always my initial point of reference. The contrasting element then brings the collection into the contemporary through inspiring fabrics, detailing and construction techniques. Capturing the muse is very important to me when revealing the mood of the collection. I portray this with the use of collage and mixed media to give a layered and multi-faceted display that reflects the direction of the collection.
