fight! climate collapse. fight! racism, mysoginy,fight! homophobia, transphobia & ageism. one planet! one people!
UNISEX, NON BINARY, Anti FAST Fashion, Independence, Multicultural influences, NON CONFORMITY AND FIGHTING FOR OUR PLANET are AT THE HEART OF 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.....CLOTHING TO THINK ABOUT.
Customised pieces are restructured, embellished, printed and painted
and are transformed from vintage and discarded clothing into wearable art. ALL WORK AT
