Hazell combines and develops garments inspired by Brutalist architecture and nature. The artist had never worked with dressmaking before starting this project; Hazell became intrigued during a foundation year at BNU. The garment’s outer layer is made out of latex – a material stumbled upon in the process of creation.

The result is a “wild collision” of natural forms and architectural elements, showing the beauty in both.
