THE STORY

MY JOURNEY INTO LIBERTY

There are so many messages around girls needing to look beautiful and there being an unsaid expectation or assessment on what is and isn't "beautiful". When I was younger I was oblivious to it and totally didn't care. Then at the end of school life got the better of me. Like many other girls, I fell into this trap of not fully embracing who I am made to be and never feeling "good enough" or "beautiful enough".

This turned into what seemed like a quarter life crisis and I hit rock bottom. I noticed it was due to losing all sense of who I was.

This collection was created from the question: "What is Beauty?". With a personal desire to find the truth of the matter, I created a 4m banner that I danced across, and then drew on, after my ankle breaking only a few days after I started. The process was life changing and really helped show me the fundamental truths about 'beauty'. It was based on my early understanding that I wanted to allow to sink in...

BEAUTY =
B.E.A.U = BE YOU
T.Y = THANK YOU.

So I challenged myself to break out the box and be myself unashamedly, while also thinking of all those people and things in my life that I am thankful for. As I say this "Journey into Liberty" was life changing.
