Ann’s work for URBAN ISLAND presents a true bohemian womenswear series built on the belief that clothing is an outlet to express the real ‘you’ without the constraints and frameworks that deem to ensnare the soul and rob it out of its essence.
Ann Mendis- the designer behind the collection is a visual artist, illustrator and textile designer with a innate fascination with print and textile surface decoration. She an avid photographer and travel enthusiast who immerses herself in the flow of life which fuels her ability to experiment with new and unexplored avenues.
A bohemian feeling captures the essence of Ann’s collection through organic prints and flowing silhouettes. Earth colours blend with bold bright hues, which add contrast and depth, inspired by the hues of withering flower buds and the onset of summers dawn.
