This was a personal research and development project started in 2016 exploring the potential develop a community focused fashion label called the Many. The concept was to partner with charities and community groups who support marginalised people in the UK, and work with their audiences to design textiles for our garments and accessories. Celebrating what people can do with their creativity to support themselves and others. The aim was to reveal latent creativity in our communities and raise money for the charitable partners, through selling unique fashion and accessories.
I partnered with Heart n Soul on a pilot of this concept in 2016 collaborating with the artist Ifeoma Orjiekwe. We developed a series of textiles and garments.
