Natasha Baradaran’s debut textile collection is a love letter to lace. From boudoirs to bras, lace has long been woven into the feminine ideal—today, the struggle for womanhood has never been more real—and Baradaran’s textiles subvert this historically fem fabric to create something entirely different. Lace here is abstracted, stripped of sentimentality and manifested as something bolder and more contemporary. The result is a covetable collection that unravels traditional gender norms and begs to be appointed. Baradaran, the ever evolving creative spirit, mines her hobbies for inspiration. “Flamenco dancing is a secret passion of mine,” she says, “In my classes, dancers wear these tremendously powerful, flowing lace skirts—the performance is equal parts sensuality and power, and I see this collection as an extension of that.”
