This collection focuses on hand felt. Anita Hirlekar, based in London, plays thoughtfully and artistically with the textile, using this technique for the construction of the garment which consists in felting the pieces together.
The result is a unique image of a woman portrayed as a timeless painting. Her garments appear to be art, rather than having just a usual fashion twist. This goes without saying that Anita was inspired by paint splashes from various abstract paintings such as Rothko and Richter.
