Barbara Medo

Department: Man and Identity


From bees and caterpillars, to beetles, dragonflies and glow worms; nature’s own eyecatchers are the inspiration behind Insected, a collection of women’s fashion textiles that literally glitters. Drawn to insects by their bright colours, metallic sheen, shimmering shells and furry limbs, Barbara Medo has created fabric for the modern femme fatale; a woman who is not afraid of standing out from the crowd. From laser cutting to latex, Barbara embraces a whole range of the latest materials and techniques to achieve her desired effect.
