On Valentine’s day while plying the waters of the Sea of Cortez, I came upon a young humpback whale that appeared to be dead. We floated next to the whale for several minutes but we saw no signs of life. Suddenly, the whale rose slightly in the water and forcefully exhaled. I decided to ease in the water with my snorkeling gear in order to assess the situation.

Le Tailleur is a work produced in collaboration with artist and friend Zoé Nehlig , during FRICHE, an artist’s residency in Brussels.
The small collection is entirely hand sewn using scraps of precious fabrics, and is using textile manipulation techniques such as shibori-inspired dyeing, and embroidery.
This work is celebrating a candid and joyful approach to garment making, disregarding expertise, trends and of course functionality.
