Esoteric Rubbish Hannah K is an extraordinary woman. She has responsibility in the home or in the office and she has a quirky side, which you only realise when you get to know her. The Hannah K woman is not plus size, she is plus fun. She laughs, dances and catches up with friends. The outside of the garments may be serious however there are hidden details and original linings, which are a private joke between wearer and designer. Anita Nivala is a music therapist and fashion designer. The diverse abilities required for these industries translate to a brand, which cocoons the individual. Anita cares for humanity. As a music therapist, Anita uses music to heal, engage and connect with people. In the same way Anita aspires for the collectors of Hannah K to feel comfortable, beautiful and confident in their lives. The wearer can use these clothes can change moods and perceptions. In music therapy, music articulates the unspeakable. In dressing, clothing communicates the inexpressible. Still life is a collection based on the brave men who explored the Antarctic in the early 1900’s. Their life, their loves, their way of living inspired the collection. Line through panelling, topstitching and pleating features strongly as does masculine tailoring elements.
