This 2022 collection is called DJENNA, which translates to Paradise in Arabic. This work is a fusion of dream and romance with an emphasis on performance, textile and gender fluidity. Fabric is a key feature in the brand with a strong consideration for organic, recycled and sustainable materials within this collection.
References for this collection include Marilyn Monroe, James Van Der Zee and 1950’s protective wear wrapped in a blanket of utopian paradise that is Babylon. An encompassing represenation of American inspiration alongside personal historical idealism. This collection and the brand ethos centers itself around cross-referencing unassociated visuals and subcultures. It is important for the brand to merge inspirations together that wouldn’t normally sit side by side, this is how Tara Babylon artistically designs oneness. Collections are always developed by fabrication and performative photography: this drives shape, silhouette and detail.
Fabrics used in the collection include: Eco Elastic, 100% Cotton Jacquard, Recycled and Organic Cottons, Hemp, Silk, Wool, Chiffon, Recycled Car Tyre, Latex, Cupro and Faux Leather/Fur. The sublimination of the digital printing is environmentally friendly combined with eco conscious pigments and inks. The materials in this collection have been carefully picked and sourced from the most effective suppliers all over the world.
