Wow. What an absolute honour to be asked to photograph the launch party of the iconic Saben x Fleur Woods "Soul Sister" collection - A limited edition collaboration that features the most beautiful hand braided leather pieces, stitched leather and new shades of parchment, terracotta, ivy and tan. A night to celebrate how texture and craft has been transformed into wearable pieces of art - and a complete 'pinch me' moment as a huge Saben fan myself.

Stitched Paintings is the term she uses to describe her style of work.
