Jamaican birthplace, she moved to London looking for a freedom that she hadn't found in America were she was studying.
Her fashion idea is really artistic. She works out and on the body, trying to find a kind of balance between clothes that are for the body and clothes that are against. She develops a vision that gives a new shape to the body. She is a master de-constructionist and has a fascination with old and distressed fabrics which has been a salvage fashion, with a strong respect for craft. Among her favorite sources of salvage, old patchwork quilts.
"The nicest element of quilts and quilt making is the inherent history that is litterally sewn into the work".
Recycling, assembling..telling people stories through belonged and lived fabrics.
