  • Kushan Namal Jayasinghe

    He/Him Inspired by the ancient 5th-century paintings of the Sigiriya maidens found in Sri Lanka's Lion Rock, 'Apsara' is a celebration of culture and women. The collection showcases intricate handcrafted detailing and a sustainable approach to design, with natural dyes, embroidered finishes, and self-woven fabrics created from scrap threads.

  • Rachael Melville

    She/Her The ‘Adagio’ collection translates to ‘at ease’ but, in a less literal sense, also denotes fluidity and grace. The inspiration for this collection comes from the slow living movement, incorporating elements of craft, nostalgia and dance. A dancer in adagio appears weightless, and these designs aim to create the same soft, cosy sensation through fashion.

  • Christine Xu

    She/Her Inspired by the transformational phases of a butterfly, 'Metamorphica' embraces adaptability and experimentation. The collection showcases Christine's creative freedom, with innovative patternmaking and sustainable practices at the forefront of her designs. On the runway, you'll discover biodegradable, multi-wear pieces crafted from reconstructed textiles, including previously-discarded leather, fair trade silk, and deadstock wool.
