TKO 14, is one of my collections inspired by the great boxer Muhammad Ali. His dedication to the sport, extreme self-confidence and incredible individuality is something I truly admire and all of these things are reflected in my collection. I focused on the relationship between his professional and personal life – the good, the bad, and the controversial. Using key elements from the sport while combining a mix of tailored aspects that stem from the work he did as an activist and his conversion to Islam.
My design aesthetic oozes a sports luxe vibe, I create pieces with energy and attitude, pieces that excite! I challenge design with oversized specs, innovative and rebellious cuts, deconstruction and luxurious fabrics, while transcending gender borders. I’m inspired by different cultures, sports and music.
Currently I am based in London focused on fashion and new personal projects. Raised in Ireland but born in America I draw on influences from these cultures as well as internships, THEIA, (New York), Nasir Mazhar, (London) and Mimi Wade, (London). Course work at Limerick School of Art and Design, Ireland and Parsons, NYC, gave me the skills to expand fashion norms. Trading under the name Siobhán Garvey exciting things to come.
