Androgyny, Anti Fashion, Independence and Multicultural influences are the main recurring themes at Burbo K'ture.
Modernist and artisanal; using texture, print, form and embellishment.
Handmade or ‘Raw Couture’ items are made with a primal, unfinished edge. Exposed seams and threads are an ongoing feature. The pieces mix a basic, sometimes 'crude' finish with a multi shape silhouette.
It’s about experimentation during the design process and experimenting with the shape when worn.
Customised pieces are restructured, embellished, printed and painted
and are transformed from vintage and discarded clothing into wearable art.
Dress designs for commercial outlets, have found a wide audience and
retain the one-off handmade appeal that has made them so popular and still unique.
As a Fashion Director, stylist, designer and collaborator,Burbo K'ture has worked on many shoots, short films and runway / live events.
Burbo has recently begun working as a freelance lecturer for University Fashion Courses, in the areas of deconstruction and customisation, styling and End of Year shows.
