background in data visualisation with childhood forays into witchcraft, her work manipulates our expectations of the natural, with clothing that responds to changes in the environment in a chameleonic – even symbiotic – way.
Her material exploration house THEUNSEEN brings to life the hidden worlds around us – from jackets that respond to air pollution to hair dye that reacts to the surrounding temperature. This is cutting edge science by way of catwalk fashion.
