Designed for a project in her first year of study Mia-Laine’s garment took references from victorian dress, corsets, ruffled collars and cuffs, and lace.

“I wanted to create a really exaggerated and sculptural silhouette and using the properties of the faux leather and rubber matting helped achieve that. My favourite thing about the garment is that you wouldn’t really know that it is knitted unless you look closely – as knitwear is quite often overlooked in industry I think it’s important to showcase what you can achieve with knit and that it doesn’t just have to be chunky sweaters or wooly hats”.
