'PETAL' INVESTIGATES THE FUNCTION OF TRANSLUCENCY.

FOR THIS COLLECTION, SHHORN CONTINUES TO FOREGROUND THE PROCESS OF FABRIC MAKING. A SERIES OF DOUBLE-FACED 'NUNO' FELTS PROVIDE A FRAME FOR THE CLOTHES TO BE BORN. THE INTERNAL FACE IS A DELICATE, SOFT WOVEN SILK, WHEREAS THE OUTER FACE BLOOMS WITH A RICH PLETHORA OF BLENDED NATURAL FIBRES. THE RESULT IS A FABRIC THAT LOOKS SOLID AND HEAVY, BUT IS ACTUALLY FEATHER-LIGHT AND TRANSLUCENT BEHIND LIGHT.

THE GARMENTS ARE DESIGNED FOR A DANCER. FORM FITTED WITH ROMANTIC BOTTOM LAYERS, JUXTAPOSED WITH GENTLY OVERSIZED OUTER LAYERS THAT FLOAT, AND ARE ELASTIC WITH THE BODY'S MOVEMENT.
