Stubborn Weeds is a contemporary publication advocating for fashion to exist as part of today’s back-to-the-land movement.
The turbulent events of the past year have helped us nurture a social revolution from our backyards. Witnessing not only the fragility of our food systems in the face of food shortages but the precarity of our own human vulnerability, our instinctual desire to be more self-sustaining and in tune with the Earth’s natural rhythms has resurfaced. Inspired by the return of the Victory Garden, memories of my own home-steading childhood and intimate relationship with my garden sparked a desire for positive transformation. Whilst challenging the idea of what contemporary fashion should look like, Stubborn Weeds embodies this movement by exploring a regenerative approach to creative direction and photography. Using handmade pieces made from existing resources or food itself that can be later composted or made into a meal.
