On 16th December 2014 I showcased my new collection “Behind Every Tie Is A Great Man”. I wanted to create a space where everyone could physically step into the theme and experience the mood based on my personal experience, triggered by the selection of fabrics I chose to make ranges of ties. I am still fascinated with the idea of how our five senses can connect with every day objects, which bring back memories of the past. This is what makes every tie unique because each one has a story to tell. It also makes each person unique too because we all come from different backgrounds, which affect the way we think about different subjects. Hence the reason I selected four different models to demonstrate each person’s character and how that would contribute in the way they wore their ties. Along with a short story of the memory each fabric inspired me to make a tie. I will be posting more about each tie in the weeks to come.
