ABOUT

The pattern for the fabric of the collection is rich in concept, dazzling in idea, noticeably communicative and illustrative. The designer wanted to acknowledge the importance of the whales in our ecosystem, for their role of producing large amounts of oxygen for our planet, as well as to highlight the inspiring characteristics of them. Each of the garments of this collection carries a part of the main sound waves, which resembles the echoes of the humpback whale song in the oceans while migrating.
