Eden Keshia specialises in avant-garde womenswear and hand-painted designs. Having a love for embellishment, surface patterns and textures inspire her to create unique garment finishes that are made up of intricate hand-painted and embroidered elements.
A fixation with colour and fabric manipulation generates designs, which feature a variety of stimulating fabrics, prints and colour ways. Eden appreciates an assiduous design process, which appeal to a multitude of senses, developing them into more than just aesthetic pieces.
A strong theatrical background has informed her eclectic design aesthetic, influencing her choice in dramatic silhouettes and eye-catching embellishments. She believes it is important to recognise the beauty and individuality of hand-crafted design across all artistic disciplines.
Hand-rendered techniques engender true individuality, allowing the maker to create something completely bespoke. The leather garments in the collection have been reworked from donated leather jackets, a process which respects contemporary fashion up-cycling and it compatible with a slower-paced fashion industry. The idea of slowly accumulating a wardrobe of one-off pieces actively challenges the typical consumerism and disposability of garments associated with the industry.
