EXEMPLAR

EXEMPLAR’S notion on fashion is rooted from an architectural standpoint. They view the relationship between fashion and architecture as being very much alike, as both of these disciplines provide protection, privacy, comfort and insulation, which is manifested through contrasting mediums. The garments that EXEMPLAR™ creates are extensions of the built environment around them. EXEMPLAR™ are emulating their learnings from architecture and are actualising it in the fashion realm.
