This is a brief talk given at an event held by Alliance Francais in Singapore for International Women's Day. It covers a little of my own personal journey into how Matter came to life, the building blocks of its community (artisans, designers, customers) and examples of other communities in fashion using connectivity for new ways of organising business.


PRINTS: kamal in lagoon blue mobi in honeycomb yellow classic WIDELEG This classic beauty epitomises timeless elegance and the subtle, powerful confidence that comes with it. Cropped above the ankle and with two pairs of button closures to wear on the waist or the hip, it is versatility epitomised. Pair with any manner of top, really. PRINTS: bhalka in indigo blue KAMAL IN MIST BLUE TAPERED HAREM This is the classic harem pants, reworked for the discerning modern nomad who loves the worldliness of this silhouette yet prioritises fit and fabric. Fit for any meeting, whether in the markets of Jaipur or the glass windows of New York. Wear with a jacket or slinky top. PRINTS: kangura in striped cotton mobi in pomegranate red
