Hey, my names Elliot I'm a designer originally from the farmlands of Yorkshire with a rugby background. However, I knew deep down that life wasn't for me, my life was meant to clean up this world from discarded trash from our industry and to use that to garm the new movement of people that appreciated the new step forward of future fashion 'trash chic'.
So I get my foundations from interest in archive fashion and Japanese streetwear. However my inspiration actually comes from whatever I find when I'm collecting trash or discarded collectables this is what brings the story to me and builds a narrative to my collection. my most recent collection was based around my interest in collecting embellishments and historical numbers which gave me the idea to make a collection about garbage women time travellers.
My inspiration comes from my interest in the advancements of anti-fashion from such designers like Maison Margeila, Rei Kawakubo, Simon Porte Jacquemus and ann Demeulemeester as these are the designers that opened my eyes to a different type of fashion in the industry, the ones that don't follow social acceptance or norms. they tort me that conventional fashion was why fashion was dying but this advancement in thinking outside the box was rejuvenating fashion.
So as its my job as a new anti-designer to keep up with this movement I needed a new edge on things. I got inspiration from the Margeila show 'Salvation Army' which got me thinking what if I could make new clothes out of old discarded fabrics, embellishments and collectables.
