ÚNA BURKE
RE.TREAT collection "Where restriction becomes healing"

ÚNA BURKE is an artist designer based in London :” Through my work I continually aim to create leather objects which are both visually captivating and technically challenging. They are indefinable as particular garments, avoiding being placed into the conventional categories of the fashion industry. They are free to exist as wearable objects, to be interpreted independently by each individual. I use traditional leatherworking techniques to produce these evocative, conceptual creations and in doing this I hope to encourage a new and more modern appreciation for leather craftsmanship, presenting the possibilities achievable through the use of this material in both the areas of visual art and of functional design.”

Mermaids and sharks … they both live in the ocean. It was only a matter of time before their worlds collided – with tragic consequences. Yeah, try singing your way out of that one, darling.

MICHAEL SONTAG
Spring 2012, Berlin Fashion week



Michael Sontag’s perennial and cognitive attitude to the development of his work has remained with his Spring/Summer 2012 collection.
He has continued to break through the set parameters of fashion, allowing his work to develop with clarity from his previous Seasons. This lucid and flowing concept mirrors the sleek lines and fluid silhouettes of his work. Breaking the boundaries of trend, age and Season, Michael has created a wearable collection for the elegant, confident and sensual woman. Michael has maintained his organic approach to design allowing fall of the fabric and how it interacts with the female form, to determine his work.
