The Field of Reeds:

The preservation of bodies in Ancient Egypt is essential to a soul’s survival in the afterlife. “The Field of Reeds” showcases a soul on its journey through the afterlife, not knowing if it is chained to reality or finally liberated. I aim to show an evolution that will empower the wearer throughout their journey to freedom.

My collection showcases simplified lines that give each look a sleek and modern silhouette. Geometric shapes are featured to add an architectural composition to each garment, which keeps the wearer grounded to reality. A bold yet simplistic clean-cut piece empowers the wearer, while tiers of panels are layered throughout each look to display the many trials one goes through until they are free.
