BA (Hons) Fashion
Amy Mather Monge
I am an emerging womenswear fashion designer with the aspiration of working in haute couture in the future. My designs are strongly inspired by story telling and by my views and opinions about things that are happening or have happened and have a contemporary effect in the world both politically or morally. I love the use of different textiles and traditional hand crafted techniques such as hand beading and bobbin lace, as well as blazer cutting and CAD embroidery to help to communicate my ideas.
As for my designs I love making women feel sexy and empowered through very feminine designs but also contrasting them with a more boxy masculine fit. Through this collection I want express my concerns about the responsibility of humankind in general , and the fashion industry in particular with the destruction of the Amazon Rainforest.
