PALIMPSESTS

This collection is inspired by the idea of Palimpsests – manuscripts which have had the original writing erased in order to make room for new text, but where the earlier content is still traceable underneath. This idea is re-contextualised as a cross section of my own wardrobe history. I consider that my own collection of clothes is my most important Library of references and inspiration. Combined and layered are favourite garments, inherited pieces, vintage finds and my own past collections; all which use amalgamations of different histories to create something constantly new. It is fresh, but it carries with it inherent memories, meanings and purposes.
