The LORN JEAN collections focus on exquisitely executed details and design using extremely labour-intensive techniques which create a stunning aesthetic with the use of luxurious materials. New and innovative construction methods are a focus in the brand aesthetics which are developed to create unique forms and seaming within garments. The construction is both decorative and emotionally considerate to the many beautiful and diverse forms of the physique through the ergonomic qualities of the techniques.
"I am drawn to exquisite and unique details of objects, of anything which is so meticulously done that it is breathtaking. This is a focus for me within the design for LORN JEAN. The attention to detail and exquisite execution of the garment is paramount. The finest materials, responsibly sourced and highly considered design which strikes the balance between creativity and wearability is a focus in the development of the collections. Intelligent construction and pattern cutting to achieve this is a strength for the brand and an area that I consider of extreme importance. These key elements create the unique aesthetic of LORN JEAN and continue to push and develop the beautiful and unique detail-orientated design." Lorn Jean
Only one design is ever manufactured for order once - the designs are exclusive, individual and never replicated. A RTW line is being developed for launch in 2018 however the collection will consist of limited edition pieces only as rarity and individuality in design is highly valued by LORN JEAN.

Emotionally Considerate Design
Impact on the wearer is of extreme importance. ‘Emotionally Considerate Design’ is an integral aspect for the development of the collections in order to encourage positive and healthy developments within the fashion environment. This proposes that when designing, the impact that a design has on the emotions of the wearer should be wide-reaching and considerate. Knowledge about how different aspects of a design could effect someones emotions is central to creating intelligent and highly refined garments which are both beautiful and create positive emotions to the wearer through the ergonomics of the design.
