What was the creative thought behind this collection?
The collection ‘THEIA’ is inspired by the Greco-Roman Goddesses, like Aphrodite, Hera, Gaia, Artemis and Athena. It celebrates femininity that is strong, individualistic and timeless. Imbuing the different qualities of these Goddesses, the collection is a juxtaposition of feminine and soft detailing with the toughness and metallic sheen of a warrior’s armour. Greek drapery, the Toga, panelled skirts, bias cutting and capes that graze the shoulders form some of the key elements of the collection. The silhouettes in the range attempt to find meaning and relevance for the clothes beyond festive occasions by letting the wearer mix and match and wear the statement separates in exciting new ways.
