Autumn Winter 23
By definition, “Lineage” is the ‘descent in a line from a common progenitor’. This collection explores the idea of connections that take place all around us, from the past to the present. Through exploring personal lineage and family history, the collection draws inspiration from 40s wartime clothing, uniforms and workwear. The ‘grey area’ surrounding a personal Polish heritage are literally translated into utilitarian fabric and colour, with a blue highlight that alludes to the struggle of refugees. A new, united future is proposed, valuing connection between people and emphasising the bonds between wearers.
