"I've been developing my idea of gender fluidity but with a working story of rock stars, artists, playwrights, and musos and groupies. I'm imaging swapping ideals, creative genres, clothes and mannerisms." says Katie Eary



"Following the journey of the clothing from lover to stage outfits. I was taken by Iggy Pop and Nico's brief fling leading to the idea of them swapping clothes in the process of creating music and being lovers. This rule applied to all rockstars (of that time) with their lovers - it's my version of magpie androgony."


A key colour backdrop for this season is black, a first time for the colour and print orientated designer. It has been used throughout the collection to highlight a more mature luxe feel to an already exotic and eclectic fusion of motifs.
