Maria Jovrea
Following my dream of being a part of the fashion industry, after High School I have moved to Italy to work in a production house that at the time had contracts with labels like Burberry, Salvatore Ferragamo, Ermanno Scervino, Prada and many more, thanks to the experience I have learned the process of the technical part of fashion. Returning home I have decided to continue my family tradition and help local people with my skills in designing and making, but that didn’t last for long since I got the opportunity to move to London in 2015 for a BA Degree in Fashion and Textiles which I have graduated in 2018.
I usually draw my inspiration from everyday moments, risk and comfort, melancholy and cheerfulness, people’s emotions play a subtle but important part of my daily life.
My young label has taken a violent romantic aesthetic starting with the AW1819 Collection INFATUATION. Mostly used for the pieces is  RED which it's a very emotionally intense color, it's the color of passionate love, seduction, violence, danger, anger, and adventure.
The message of the brand is encouraging us to be ourselves, accept the way we feel and not to be afraid to express it. As I tend to mostly be inspired by the way people make me feel, I have created from this, a name for all my pieces - 'Wearable Feelings'.
With 'WEARABLE FEELINGS' I am hoping to bring more awareness into people's lives about their feelings, I believe it is important to understand and embrace the way we feel.

Maureen Vorswijk began her career in fashion, working in Amsterdam as a wardrobe stylist for theater shows, and several fashion projects. After designing her own lingerie and fashion collection her designs were also worn in music videos, photo shoots and fashion shows. After 8 years, Maureen made a career switch and she choose for her first love, Jewelry. While composing images for MAUKE V there was another mission which had to be accomplished as well. That was the moment a small lingerie collection was included and which she believes women would love to put their hands on. Maureen Vorswijk doesn't follow any particular style, thoughts or rules but has created an own individual style. She draws from inner inspiration, from images of ancient times seeking their way through her mind into her hands, art, photography, old magazines, when looking at her family, her trips to Surinam and Nigeria, personal transformation and her obsession for beautiful things. But the feeling she strives for is to create that piece of jewellery for her customers that makes them feel confident, feminine, strong the moment they put it on. Materials used are sterling silver, 14kt gold, a variety of handpicked gemstones from Africa and natural material such as leather cords for her entirely handcrafted and hand-polished jewelries

Michael Gurhy


My artwork primarily focuses on the figure, psychological portraits constructed from both fantasy and memory are then further informed by tear out pages of glossy high fashion magazines. The male figure within the work seems to challenge traditional images of male beauty that use strength and power as currency, these subjects are often passive, even tearful capturing some kind of inward battle or melancholia. Adorned in piercings and marked by symbolic tattoos and thick bodily hair, these features evoke the artists early experiences of masculinity and vulnerability. In opposition the female figures gaze seem more deliberate, bold and suggests a knowing or sense of premonition. Recurring themes within the work include vulnerability, mortality, sexuality, the uncanny and the transcendental. Animals such as deers, birds, foxes and wolves become symbolic messengers. There is a sacred/celestial component within the work that is both gentle and violent, destruction is linked with creation exorcising the old and paving the way for new cycles.   Shop Front Banner   Positive Acts: Produced locally, sustainable and ethical  supply chain
