Fashion That Functions


A selection of documented designs that represent some core concepts in garment design that have driven me as a designer.

Pieces are transformable and adjustable to be controlled and adapted by the wearer, opening up a conversation that can lead to practicality and creativity of the individual who wear them.All designs were made and documented between 2002 and 2004.
