◻️ 1831. 15-year-old Mary begins the difficult task of telling her story. Mary leads a harsh life working on her father's farm. In the summer she is sent to work for the local vicar's invalid wife, where the reasons why she must record the truth of what happens to her are gradually revealed.
My inspiration for this collection derived from the archetypes of Carl Jung. In particular: the shadow, the persona and the self. Real pressed flowers are encapsulated in contrasting pleated plastic with the same flowers printed and embroidered onto silks. Each garment forms part of a narrative that represents the human evolution of consciousness that altogether create a glamorous, modern yet functional collection.
