Lost in the Mountains
My collection ‘Lost in the Mountains’ is inspired by mental health and how it can be positively affected and improved through living an alpinist lifestyle, represented through skiwear heritage. Looking at contemporary silhouettes inspired throughout skiwear history merging both past and future fashion. I respond to this through vibrant fabric, digital prints and laser etching manipulated from my own hand draw responses. Reusing old skiwear to create up cycled and sustainable accessories. Sourcing fabrics locally within Scotland, receiving a sponsorship from Halley Stevenson wax cotton manufactures. I feel that although many designers look to mental health as inspiration no one looks at the positives and how it can be improved as well as using garments to represent that. Bringing light to skiing as an fashion trend and deserves recognition for giving designers inspiration for winter/fall looks each year. Sending the message - it isn’t just a sport it’s a positive lifestyle.
