MAORIANA 2014

SPRING SUMMER 2014

Maoriana

My latest collection has been inspired by my love of Vintage Maori dolls , Pania of the reef and Hinemoa and New Zealand Kiwiana, I wanted to use motifs that explore the imagery we associate with the past , our cultural images such as the tui what it represents for me and the I also did my own take on the flax bush

In this collection I have re-worked my own piu piu prints, which are all printed on high quality polyester chiffon , The flax prints are all on cottons and Garbadine drill aswell as elements of chambray with the reversible jacket and pant

 

All are items I feel are key this coming summer
