Shannen Maria Samuel

Drawing inspiration from her islander life in the Isle of Man, Shannen’s concepts are heavily inspired by Manx myth and folklore superstitions, with the occasional throwback to ‘emo’ teenage-hood (creating an eerie punk fusion).

 

Abolishing the usual robotic calendar of fashion seasons, Shannen’s works around closing loops - reimagining life to disregarded throwaway materials. From working with laddered tights to old racing leathers - each collection is fully transparent with a story to tell, thus giving way to her ‘throwbacks & throwaways’ ethos
