In the couture line, boundaries are always pushed. Materials are stretched and manipulated into the unexpected. Then fused with engineering-inspired detail, architecture and powerful lines into something beautiful, oddly elegant yet daring and timeless. The rigid structure of fixed bodices and strong shapes accentuate elegance and femininity. They compliment the strong personalities of the women who wear them, and they bring out the inner goddess of those of shyer disposition. Each piece tells a story of its materials origin and becomes the first chapter of a new story, taking the femme fatale on a journey of risky adventure and feminine allure.
Couture pieces range from £300 to £1000.
“The couture line unites structure and softness creating feminine, yet edgy gowns and dresses. They hold beauty capable of drawing in the viewer's eye to look at every curve, and every detail.” - Ellie, Brighton Fashion Week Coordinator
Dumpster Apparel is a ready-to-wear label with collections made in small quantities to guarantee exclusivity. Every item is always hand made and the patterns are designed and printed digitally, enabling high level of detail and intricacy in the pattern, as well as intense depth of colour. Where the print runs are deliberately kept low, and the patterns irregular, each cut from the material will have a unique area of the image, therefore no two pieces are ever the same.
Apparel pieces range from £40 to £300.
