The focus of my MA Fashion degree has been to create my own business as well as the exploration of my Christian faith through wearable art. My ambition has been to create a bridal company that creates androgynous garments for brides who are looking for a look that is more gender neutral. This has been a venture inspired by my wife’s experience whilst we searched for our own wedding garments in 2014, as she was unable to find an alternative that could stand next to a traditional bridal gown with the same grandeur. My wedding experience has also had an impact on the fashion art side to my practice. Whilst both my wife and I are practising Christians, we were denied any form of religious expression during our wedding ceremony. We were unable to wear cross necklaces, due to the religious restrictions on LGBTQ+ marriages that had just become legal that year. This experience had a lasting impact on my creative practice, as I sought ways to bridge the gap between Christians and the LGBTQ+ community. I believe it is important for everyone to be allowed to express their faith equally, and my artwork is intended to explore these issues with an aesthetic reminiscent of classical religious statues and grand cathedral architecture.
