Exploration of imagination is key to escaping the chains of a mundane life, with young generations breaking away from traditional social values and expectancies; there could be a potential new consumer market to consider.

With ever increasing social pressure to conform, this collection will celebrate freedom through exploration of print and silhouette.  A concept –led approach represented through textiles, inspired by the tales and lives of Romani Gypsies, who as a minority have been persecuted for centuries for their non-conformist way of life.

Introducing Gypsy Maverick, a Spring/Summer 2017 print and textiles focused collection inspired by the tales and lives of Romani Gypsies. Offering unique designs that allows the wearer to stand out from the crowd through bold silhouettes, colours and prints with aspects of handmade qualities.
