Playing with folds & pleats
as if the wool fabric were paper origami,
this is the debut 2012 collection by Sonya Kraan.
"Riding the Storm Clouds"
was inspired by the tortuous effects of migraine headaches.
She has played with layers,
some turned up,
some turned down,
to represent the sense of chaos suffered.
Amazing that something so awful
has inspired such beautiful clothes.
If this is what she can do with a migraine brief,
imagine what else this young designer is capable of.
Kraan's collection would go brilliantly
with some of these Samantha Wills jewellery pieces, I think.
They have that same sense of controlled chaos.
Considering Sonya was a student just a few years ago,
and this is her debut collection for her own label,
something tells me this is one young designer to watch.
