“Existence is a series of footnotes to a vast, obscure, unfinished masterpiece.”
 — Vladamir Nabokov

KIRSTEN LEY is an artist who enjoys empowering women through confidence-inducing clothing. Constructing eponymous, avant garde and visceral pieces, she juxtaposes structurally bound leather with the whimsy of fervent, flowing skills, while exploring structural details inspired by both vintage and modern anatomy diagrams.

“My pieces are organic and visceral and move naturally with the female form. I’m always continually aware of the lines of the body and without disrupting comfort, I distort in a grotesquely beautiful way. There's always an element of natural, organic beauty and manipulation whilst still keeping in line with the anatomical feel of a garment.”
