politicized casual wear for women- intersecting fashion, art and hand craft
HITOKOO is a line of casual women's fashion, produced in mini collections that address political and cultural narratives in handmade, limited quantities integrating textile craft elements.
Representational motifs and prints are repeated throughout the collection and are generated from drawings and paper cut out stencils, and are based on concepts explored in my fibre art.
From concept to design; pattern to final product, each piece is hand crafted in my studio. I source fine quality, luxurious natural fabrics in limited quantities. In the ethic of handcraft and small run production, I create original pieces of contemporary wearable art.
Through my clothing line, I serve to align collectors with an expression of their core identities and to drive empowered communications within themselves and with the world around them.
