Multilayered women's top fabricated from indigo sateen fabric.
Originally the garment was designed for children and transformed into a womenâ€™s outfit during the conception phase.The name Playground warrior is inspired by the seemingly carefree lifestyle of children. The outfit recreates this lifestyle and allows the wearer to relive a moment of youth.The topâ€™s silhouette is inspired by traditional japanese samurai uniforms. Similarities are evident in the strong shoulder line and the dropped shoulder caps. The pixie hoodie creates a private shelter while he front flap sheers the untamed power of the warrior.

True, I talk of dreams, Which are the children of an idle brain, Begot of nothing but vain fantasy - William Shak
A childs brain is filled with creativity, imagination and to an extend surreal and bizarre images. As a part of getting older and with increasing knowledge we doubt the unthinkable and limit our ability to imagine.The images on the next page were taken during an outdoor photoshoot for Playground warrior and resemble a close replication of reality captured throught the lense of my camera. I challenged myself to put myself back into a child’s mind and transformed these images into environments that are surreal and playful. As an inspiration for my collages i used candy, toys and “good looking” fashionable animals. As a result i created images which appears engaging, playful and even shocking at times.
