In order to identify with like-minded people, you have to fight for what you believe. The flag is an important characteristic; a symbol. As a people, you can use a flag to make your voice heard, and I use this in my designs. Over the flag, I've placed an extra layer of luxury fabrics and prints, to add my own twist and to make my designs more personal. I'd like people to empathise with my collection and be able to identify with the pride that a flag can engender in a nation.
