SADIE CLAYTON

 
The designer’s architectural approach sees avant-garde shapes, manipulating industrial materials and silhouettes to fit the female form. The designer’s signature fabric - and the element that brings good luck - copper, is prevalent within her collections as is copper sheeting, which has been hammered and heated for a progressive finish. Sadie also has a personal spirituality which she draws on coming from the metaphysical properties of stones, and physiognomy. Themes which have been translated into her garments through their voluminous shapes, or constraints and twisted proportions. The fabrics replicate the texture and composition of the crystals.
