Young Enough

Within us, all a child lurks, free from the confining structure of modern life. Instead, the designer synthesises a natural world where the wearer can roam free in make-believe and succumb to her childlike wonderment.

Consciously breaking away from the natural, adult state of mind, the designer explores an escapist world that she constructs using PVC, cotton, polyester and a collection of loose knits. The use of synthetic materials creates an ever-lasting, biodegradable place void of the harshness of reality. Bright colours and playful patterns seduce the wearer into a state of being where playtime lasts forever.
