Made in Grey Britain is a collaborative collection of six hand screen printed cashmere jumper designs with World renowned cashmere producers Johnstons. Inspiration for the collection is about Britain today; industries in decline, industrial manufacture, shop floors, British weather, the generation spanning productivity of Johnston’s Mill in Hawick and its commitment to create beautiful things at all points throughout its history, individualism and a need to question, utilitarian objects that have died, been dismantled and resurrected on the garments they were once used to create. The made in Grey Britain tag is a more thought provoking idiom. The collection has been showcased at Premium Berllin, Pitti Immagine, Milan and marketed through Global agents. In excess of 300 units were marketed on an international level. The collection received wide acclaim through International press and fashion blogs including Italian Vogue.
