My collection takes inspiration from the Ancient Egyptian process of mummification. The controlled fabric manipulations used at the beginning of my collection contrast with the fluid lines in the latter looks, as the garments progress from their tightly bound appearance to a state of unraveling. I used raw silk as it is a natural fibre which would have been used by Ancient Egyptian Nobility.
