The Empty Oceans Series is Zuhal Kuvan-Mills’ emotional response to the world’s troubled oceans. It is inspired by marine life and its wide diversity of forms, shapes, colours, textures and wonderful structures.

“As an environmental activist, designer and artist, I believe art and fashion impacts our emotions and can move us to value our blue planet. With this series of work, I aim to highlight the ocean’s fragility as well as its beauty. And I hope to inspire many more people not only do the same, but to collaborate with organisations such as Sea Shepherd.”

Industrial fishing net remnants and recycled polyester made of trash, plastic bottles, drift/ghost fishing nets were used as a starting point. Every piece in the collection is a three-dimensional canvas offering the vastness of the ocean, crashing waves, sea animals, shapes and textures, all represented through fluid form and surface design.

She brings a unique and well-informed perspective to the world of Eco fashion. The designer lives on a farm where she raises alpacas, creates her own wool felting and uses natural ingredients to produce her palette.
