WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 2: A designer who takes old designs and breathes new new life into them will feature alongside seven other designers at the Bermuda Fashion Collective Show this weekend.

Live performance production worker, Tabitha Hollis, (aka Tabitha Royal), says she is currently known for her “reconstruction” or “recycled designs”. 

The collection debuting this Sunday at the Bermuda Society of Arts pays homage to the go green recycle generation in her “denim series”.

Hollis explains: “As a creative designer I transform or re-enhance garments into something fresh.

“This collection is not the norm for fashion shows, yet as the designer, I set the trend most importantly knowing my demographic.

“As a designer, there is nothing more thrilling than helping a fashion enthusiast radiate from the inside out — creating looks that suite the individual at best.”

Hollis is making her debut as a fashion designer at the Bermuda Fashion Collective Show but says she aims to make make a full career out if it.

She added: “I design for all ages from infants-up, men and women.

“Creativity is my force.”

Hollis wil be joining fashion designers Amethyst, Ashley Aitken, Dana Cooper, Dean Williams, Edith Rookes, Nicole Iris and Rene Hill.

All the designers, except Holllis, have previously shown their designs on the runway at the Bermuda Society of Arts.
