‘Carole’ 2019

The ‘Carole’ collection is inspired by the traditional Anabaptist group, Hutterite. Unlike the Amish community, whose dress is modest in colour. Hutterite women wear bright colours, calicos, tartans, polka dots and prints which are often worn all together. Photographs of Hutterite women are striking for the harmonious fabrics and colour palatte. As a group, buying a years worth of fabric to be shared translates into a wonderfully ecclectic display of individuality within community. Photographed by Ruby Pluhar, the three-look collection was created during Zoe’s second year at Glasgow School of Art. Bright silk taffeta tartans against Prince of Wales checks and vibrant reds, which are all patched together with exaggerated silhouettes.
