“My design philosophy comes from a desire to explore and challenge traditional textiles. Two of my favorite traditional textiles are Wool and Seal Fur and I feel they complement and strengthen one another and this is how and why I choose to combine them in my designs. My garments are unique. They are fitted, shaped and carefully considered to highlight the natural sheen of the fur and, ultimately, to complement the personality of the wearer. I also experiment with texture and color in my design process as it brings an edgy and interesting new element to contemporary seal fur design.”
