HEART ART

An increasingly prevalent throwaway culture led the designer to ask Why do I have certain clothes that I never throw away?” Her conclusion that some garments have sentimental value and memories attached to them was the inspiration for the HEART ART collection. Detailed and time-consuming hand processes which cannot be replicated in a fast fashion context, create a collection of endearing garments that will not readily be thrown away.
