STRATA

Strata is a continuation of experimentation using different knit techniques and set parameters to create new forms that fit and distort the body. The strata or layers of each piece are subtle references from previous garments. Each piece evolved from a single swatch of knit. There is no waste in production of any of these garments as each strand of yarn used to prototype is unravelled and used in the final garment. Materials such as alpaca, silk and yak lend themselves to the structures and morphic forms.
