My inspiration

For the escape artists // It was while dancing for Staatsballett Berlin that I was struck by Sea Fever: ‘I must go down to the seas again, for the call of the running tide…’. John Masefield’s poem reflected a longing to reconnect my life in theatre with the wonder of the wild. This feeling inspired my first collection of wearable art – Somefish – immersing us in a jewel-toned underwater world.

 

Our commitment as conscious consumers

There will be more plastic than fish in our oceans by 2050 (source: World Economic Forum). It’s why I feel so strongly that any product I make for the sea must also help save it. The DBA bodysuit is made of 78% regenerated fibre, giving plastic waste a new life. Digitally printed in the UK then sewn by a specialised costume studio in Italy, DBA bodysuits are made in purposefully small batches that ensure zero waste. You will receive your order via carbon-neutral courier, in recyclable packaging that includes an organic cotton tote bag.
