The ‘Bite your Tongue’ AW17 collection is based on the Kashmir conflict.
The Military influence is clearly visible in the ‘Bite your Tongue’ collection. The tailored clean lines and colours used in this design- led collection portray the uniforms worn by the vast number of militants in the area and represent the hues of the mountainous landscape.
Strong silhouettes are an ode to the resilient women behind the families in the region and incorporate the idea of the ‘Bacha Posh’ (a cultural practice in parts of Afghanistan and Pakistan, in which some families without sons will pick a daughter to live and behave as a boy.)
