With this collection, I wanted to go back to the origins of Eustratia and create pieces that embody the contradictions which inspired me to start the label. Delicate lace and feminine silhouettes contrasted by harness straps and oversized hardware.

Last month I had the pleasure of being contacted by Qoive magazine “Fashion magazine by fashion bloggers”, to contribute some images and quotes for their inaugural issue, fashion blogger feature.
Fashion illustrations of the featured bloggers by Purushu Arie were featured next to their quotes.
This was mine, based on an image by Richard Ayres.
It was interesting to be featured alongside all these other bloggers, because it gave me the opportunity read through their quotes and gain an insight into their style and views.
I particularly like that they made an effort to feature bloggers whose style differed from the norm.
I also love the cover illustration based on Shini Park of Park & cube.
On the second page of my feature, they mentioned by label, Eustratia and added a quote for my website and the full version of the image my illustration was based on, from the Vanguard collection lookbook.
I loved being involved in this project and hope to have more similar opportunities in future.
I recently launched the new Eustratia latex/chainmail fusion collection, Chimera. The collection was produced in collaboration with chainmail and metal jewellery designer, Richard Ayres. The name was chosen to reflect the combination of two, very different materials.
The theme of the collection revolves around medieval military and knights while still adhering to aspects of current silhouettes and trends.

We also did a bit of a concept shoot before we got kicked off our chosen location!
Items from this collection are now available to purchase on the online store!
All chainmail components were hand made down to each individual link by my partner, Richard Ayres. He is also happy to take on orders for custom and bespoke items so feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org with any ideas or questions. His collection of metal jewellery and accessories will also be added to the online store very soon.
It was a bit of a rush to get the whole collection made and shot before I left for clothes show live and I ended up waiting to launch till I got back and was able to add items to the shop. I’m quite happy with the way everything turned out given the circumstance, special thanks to David for all his help and support!
Close up shots of the accessories coming soon, along with some more perspex.
