The collection is inspired by the solitude and emptiness people feel as individuals, and how this can turn into a new inspiration when embraced. Sartorial, timeless pieces allow the wearer a deeper connection with their clothing, combining vintage and elegant design features with a sustainable and modern twist. Each piece tells a story of the designer’s journey and considered ethos.
Cylée Autumn 2022 was premiered at the Auckland Town Hall.
The creation of this collection has been a steep learning curve for me as a fashion designer who hopes to contribute meaningfully to the industry in the future. The awareness I have developed during the processes of working with, rather than attempting to control, my materials has opened pathways for future designs that are sustainably creative, and bear the qualities of being cared for and respected from start to finish.
