This collection marks the first for Emily Mae. Each garment was designed with and for each model, and they were completed as part of my masters degree. The fabrics used are naturally dyed using a variety of onion skins, avocado stones, woad and madder.
The goal for this project was to create a holistic system for making clothes. One where process, materials, output and marketing were all equally considered for their ecological and ethical impact.
By combining natural dyes, patchwork construction and a bespoke service, I was able to make the entire process of making and consuming clothing beneficial not only for the environment, but also for the wearer.
