Equality + Justice

Year of study

Kingston School of Art

Orlanda’s collection challenges how masculinity is seen within disempowered youth.

Our perspective on maleness is broad and nuanced, giving space to softer elements beyond the limited stereotype of fetishised toughness.

The friction between strength and vulnerability is echoed in the use of fluid but durable fabrics for this collection.

By actively recruiting real men and documenting their stories as part of the presentation, the intention is to create clothes that expand the narrative and perception of healthy masculinity within Britain.
