Title: Spectrum

 

Collection Inspiration   |   Artist Statement

My collection explores fashion design and construction through the occult interests and scientific methods developed by my muse, Sir Isaac Newton. To tell his story, my sewing machine became my laboratory and garments were my path to discovery. My pieces incorporate geometric textiles and silhouettes. The color story arose from Newton’s discovery of the visible spectrum. I have utilized the experiments he conducted on light and color theory, as well as symbology from his alchemical and Masonic practices, to thoughtfully create textiles, accessories, and headwear.
