I have approached the customisation of a basic shirt block through simple and non-transient styling that values the attributes of linen as a durable and relatively sustainable fibre. Each shirt has been designed with the details of the styling resulting from collaboration with individual project partners.

Ultimately I endeavour to raise awareness of the value and sophistication of textiles, and linen in particular, through longevity of design that may enable a garment to become the wearer’s ‘old friend’.
