The New York Collection was proudly showcased at FlyingSolo: Ones to Watch, NYFW 2020. This collection celebrates the bravery of our collective ancestors who honoured the deep pull of adventure and exploration beyond their known world. No matter where in the world your blood-line journeys back to, our ancestors all chose to seek new shores and lands beyond their view, past the horizons they could see.
In this world of 2020, we experience a world that has contracted and closed down. It is a world that is dominated by fear of the unknown, anxiety about a future that we cannot see nor control. The New York collection takes that fear and turns it into intrepid curiosity.
Borrowing from those who come before us, this collection reminds us that the world is still beautiful, that it is full of opportunity to grow and learn and add value. Each piece offers us strength in adversity, freedom in confinement, courage to trust that the wind beneath our wings will not fail us.
Let us seek adventure, be intrepid and curious. Let us be resilient and brave; let us have hope!
"Hope” is the thing with feathers, that perches in the soul. And sings the tune without the words, and never stops at all.
And sweetest, in the Gale, is heard. And sore must be the storm. That could abash the little Bird, that kept so many warm.
I’ve heard it in the chillest land, and on the strangest Sea. Yet, never, in Extremity it asked a crumb of me.
