Final Collection: Riot & Rebellion - Womenswear - Autumn/Winter 2020
The basis of my concept derives straight from radical feminism, punk ethics and strong women, being heavily influenced by the 1990's riot girl movement and activist group Pussy Riot. It is a mix of ultra feminine silhouettes and fabrics, animalistic prints, embellished with tough hardware and protest slogans. I wanted to portray the image of a modern day woman who used fashion as a form of communication and express individual style while actively protesting about issues that matter.
