My practise revolves around treating fashion like art pieces. From the Chandelearrings, to human ears, and now the Water Hat... the foundation of the Monirath brand are wearable micro-sculptures.
My latest collection, In Limbo explores the human psyche and how our habitual instinct is to connect with nature whenever we feel like we are losing our sense of self. Hats and earrings draw inspiration from the wonders of the Earth, like the elements of water and earth. Each accessory explores a different nuance of these natural elements through a design. Imitating waves and refracting light on skin to replicate how the sun hits water and exploring sand dunes and replicating both ever-changing and immovable land.
I hope In Limbo allows people to take a step back and be more grounded in their surroundings. Nature plays a prominent role in a human's life because it exists all around us at any point in time. The sounds of the waves crashing are healing, birds whistling on tree tops help us achieve a state of calm, and the smell of fresh rain allows you to cherish the world anew.
