Artist Statement:

My obsession is tailoring and through it I reflect my infatuation with the male physique, anatomically engineering sensual and sculptural pieces which both appeal to and mirrors men's vanity. This pleasure of creating unusual and beautifully tailored garments is a fetish I have developed based on my research into traditional bespoke techniques Attention to detail, unexpected finishing and comfort are all very important elements of my design.

While my designs are raw expressions of my own vision, they remain understandable and accessible to customers who is self aware and appreciative of design and high quality. I see it being available as ready - to - wear in Jones, Corso Como, Biffi and Colette. I would ideally like to create a business where I am available to work with customers, through these outlets, in a bespoke fashion.
