Collar and Clutch Bag Collection

About this project

This accessory collection was inspired by the hand pleated fabrics developed for my PhD. The different wool types and pleated patterns that I had researched and customised to create new surfaces were perfect for bespoke accessory designs. The challenge has been to present clean cut edges from the intricate folded surfaces whilst allowing the fabric to enhance the neckline and body contours to give each accessory a sophisticated look.
