Monika Jauneikaite's professional tailoring and design skills allowed her to create a collection, which translates a minimal and sophisticated feel. Monika was heavily inspired by gender. She asked herself 'what does it mean to be a women or a man?' A lot of influence came from the history of transgender males and females. She looked into a range of different centuries and cultures, which in turn allowed her to develop a new take on traditional menswear tailoring.
Monika played with textures, shapes and garment structures in order to create balance between masculine and feminine looks.
Due to Monika’s unique concepts and skilful finesse she has collaborated with dance theatre AutinDT to create and style dance performance costumes that have been featured in Birmingham Festival and Selfridges Inspired Festival.
