Trace draws on our sense of touch and the humanness of craft. Focusing on the handmade and the adaptation of traditional handcrafts this collection is an exploration of texture and tactility. Trace is influenced by the creative process of Sheila Hicks, Louise Bourgoise, Agnes Martin, Anni Albers and the small flaws and unmistakable traces of the hand in their work. This collection displays an ambiguous materiality; wool wadding, organza, jersey and plasticised lace are combined with laser cutting and bonding to create original textiles. Silhouettes are minimal and striking with textures built up through layering. Trace is built on beautifully crafted fabrics with a very thoughtful fashion application.
