“All my designs are genderless – I hope to add to the movement by anyone of any gender being encouraged to wear any style of any garment they want Jumpsuits are an easy subject because they tend to be rather genderless on their own.”. CF

True to her core belief and brand DNA, materials from last year were repurposed to help reduce waste and to encourage other creatives to follow in her footsteps.
