Quiet Chaos Collection

Mixed-media macramé


‘Quiet Chaos’ reflects on the spontaneity of instinct, the ability to create dynamic forms through intuitive means.

I have reinterpreted traditional macramé techniques by merging unexpected materials, combining hard structures with fluid yarns to create intriguing accessory pieces for the couture market.

My collection was influenced by references such as the sculptures of David Altmejd and a study into the patination of metals.
