A London based women’s wear designer that specialises in design, marketing and pattern cutting. I am heavily influenced by music and culture within different cities which inspired the latest collection RETROSPECT. Exploring contrasts and manipulation within colour and fabrics to create unique, fun and exclusive designs.
Through my market research I looked into Hip Hop culture to analyse the relevance within fashion and society, specifically looking at the influences it has on people’s lifestyles. The collection is designed to be adaptable for all occasions such as festivals or simply street attire, allowing the customer to express themselves freely with no limitations.
The inspiration behind the collection RETROSPECT and specifically the design of the two piece came from my love for music and fashion. I wanted to create a stand out collection that catches everybodys attention. Watching `The Get Down', a Netflix film based in New York where Hip Hop originated, had influenced me to look into trends of the 90's to create the 'boyfriend' Bomber Jacket with matching trousers. The energy and culture within cities is what truly allows one to express their inner creativity.
The term Dèesse (GODESS) which means a powerful female having power over parts of the world is how I want the customers of our brand to feel while wearing our products.
RETROSPECT is a luxury streetwear collection that combines tight and oversized fits using both women’s and men’s silhouette to create the perfect oversized look. Produced for only for a limited time creating that exclusivity for customers to have one-of-a-kind products that are made to last. Dèesse signature style is the curved seam line which flows throughout the two-piece sleeves and seams lines. The brand focusses heavily on its online presence, marketing and bringing like-minded creatives together.
