These Heritage archives were made modern through a range of styles, from silhouettes inspired by the 1940s to contemporary urban cuts; folk culture to high-tech. Trends like sustainability appear in couture-level gowns, while digital innovation is applied to printing for interior design – with traditional and modern textures – as well as to graphic jewellery and accessories.
