A finalist in TFI New Labels 2017, Ryan Alexander's collection entitled Photosynthesis explores the resilience of nature through the lens of fashion.

Within the delicate, there is power. Within the exquisite, there is strength. Where wildflowers push through the cracks in the parking lot tarmac, there is endurance. Where grasses sprout from oil-fuelled wildfire ashes, there is resilience. Where saplings grow into forests inside abandoned concrete stadiums, there is fortitude.
