This collection is about evoking a look of an empowered Millenial/ Modern day man and woman in a pandemic phase of our life. From kids, teens and adult gowns saying that we need to stay positive anytime. The spring colours with the lightness of the gowns make every person wear them and give them a positive outlook in life. Wear it, be positive and smile. "Stay positive and once you find something you're really good at, refine it. Just make sure whatever you are putting out into the world is considered perfect by your own standards."
