P.E.L.L.A.'s winning presentation called THE HIVE takes inspiration from the understanding of life in slow motion. This was translated by her during the design process through zero waste pattern making and construction, weaving together indigenous handwoven textiles from silks to the finest Pashminas and stinging nettle weaves in hues of eggshell, beige and creams. It also incorporates silk painting by hand and thread as it evokes the unpredictable nature of time.
