LABEL: Raggatt
DESIGNER: Naomi Raggatt
LOCATION: Australia
CATEGORY: Womenswear

Centering the design aesthetic on folds, Naomi Raggatt is a label that is unconventional, unusual and unexpected. The act of folding is used as a design framework and methodology, utilising it as a starting point to determine the drape of the silhouette. The designer also sees the action of folding as a disruption of conventional pattern techniques, replacing it with unexpected, sculptural forms.

Citing role models like Martin Margiela and Yohji Yamamoto, the young label is an exciting exploration into unorthodox tailoring at its finest. And by looking at Naomi’s folded garments, it forces a re-thinking of traditional construction and a reworking of tradition.
