Makin Jan Ma - New collection.
I spent three months working with designer Makin Jan Ma last summer in this time I was lucky enough to produce a LFW show, two sample sales and exhibit in Paris, it was great to work alongside such a motivated individual who lives for his work. I interviewed him for this week's Dazed Digital...
Professed accidental designer Makin Jan Ma is following the path to his dreams of making movies, by designing clothes for the actors of his films. His new collection ‘Give Me Some Deep Water’ contains heavy graphic elements using baby pastel prints, which change colour dependant on the light. Mutated ‘double-t-shirts-in-one’ conjoined in a way that would enable them to be worn by Siamese twins, and oversize coats with excess hood folding, all add to the conceptual wear-ability of his everyday garments.... you can catch the rest of his interview here on Dazed Digital.
