‘Coastline’: a Spring/Summer womenswear print collection inspired by the energy of the dynamic British coastline.

Inspired by the tide, a unique, twice-daily body of water that advances and retreats over the shoreline flowing for thousands of years. Tides are an energy that we can only try to harness, to be worked with and respected.

This collection encompasses designs developed from the patterns, shapes, textures and objects left by the tide. My work uses bold mark making and a refreshing colour palette to express movement and energy on a range of luxurious fabrics. My aim is to celebrate and embody the coast and tide in a contemporary and fresh form.
