EIRINN HAYHOW presents CRYSTAL EARTH SS22. influenced by the colours and patterns in rocks and crystals, she has created her own natural dyes from foraging local plants and berries, combining them with carefully selected natural dye powders from around the world. She uses only salvaged and sustainable materials in production.
EIRINN HAYHOW takes the viewer on a journey of enlightenment, combining science, philosophy and spirituality as she reconnects us with the earth.
‘See the beauty in everything, find the light in the darkness.’ is EIRINN HAYHOW brand philosophy, as she creates unique, high vibe garments, salvaged from unwanted materials.
Sustainability has always been at the heart of her creativity. A self-taught designer, her love of fashion came from a young age.
‘Putting my legs through the bottom of carrier bags from our weekly shopping trips, pulling up the handles like straps, I had made my first pair of dungarees. paper – mêrching together tissue boxes and toilet roll tubes, painting them pink, I made myself some high-heeled shoes, then strutted down my garden like a catwalk.’
This playfulness is still present in her garments today.
EIRINN HAYHOW initially studied Fine Art, graduating with a 1st. After graduating, she spent many years in Berlin, which had a huge influence on her work. She returned to the UK in 2018 to study for her masters in Fashion Design and graduated with a distinction in 2019.
She creates her own dyes from foraging plants and berries and using fruit and vegetable waste. Everything is made from salvaged and sustainable materials that have a positive impact on our ecosystem.
She continues to research innovative ways to produce materials from natural resources.
