Brand Manifesto

- Creation by means of deconstruction and minimizing waste as a methodology

- Nouveau material use coupled with attention to detail

- Innovative and ecomaginative

- “Raw” materials yielding an end result and the end result becoming materials for products once again 

- Expunging the inherent “expiration date”

Design Conundrum

In an attempt to figure out how to choose ‘objects/objets’ for my Haute Couture collection, I have to make a quick decision. The design methodology has been determined—innovate with eco-minded/sustainable/biodegradable materials 'products’ that can be fully deconstructed/composted/biodegraded at the end of product life—but the question remains: Whether to select defined, existing objects and remake using said materials OR create stylized, unrecognizable objects made with said materials?

Trying making a decision.
