Amplify Apparel presents the SS16 collection PLEASURE. Within each of us, passions are rippling just beneath the surface. Secret infatuations motivate us, and delightful thrills push us to the edge. PLEASURE explores the desires that cause your heart to flutter, your mind to race, and your spirit to soar. Featuring avant garde wire sculptures, flowing fabrics and opulent accessories, this collection will transport you to a space where anything is accessible.

Amplify Apparel Spring/Summer 2014 collection is entitled Armour. Armour is used to protect oneself from a dangerous environment or action. With this collection I wanted to combine classic with unexpected materials to showcase the raw versus the refined. Each look encompasses high fashion glamour with a modern edge. I created characters which each represent a different side of the human psyche that is drawn to the surface depending on the challenges we are faced with in our day to day lives. Characters of the collection are "The Peasant", "The Princess", "The Bard", "The Medic", "The Whore", "The Jester", "The Traveller", "The Thief", "The Dragon", "The Warrior", "The Sorceress", "The Nun", "The Queen" and "The King".

Amplify Apparel presents the SS17 Collection WASTELAND. On the outskirts what remains of the human race struggles to survive. Society as we know it has collapsed and the military is on the brink of a nuclear war. Across the barren WASTELAND rebel warriors battle for the upper hand, toxic fumes rise into the overcast sky and scavengers steal from the weak.
