Season Four was named after a particularly fetching linen/cotton fox print I had to include. I liked it so much I made it into both a robe AND a blouse. This season feels like it's taken forever to produce. Half of it was available at a pop-up in Palmerston North in December 2019, but the rest of it took a while, and then, as you know, 2020.
