Incorporating a uniquely handmade flesh-imitation textile into their pieces, Lena M Áine’s
garments feature experiments with gore-inspired imagery to create looks that present the realm of horror with an erotic edge. Their work channels a fascination with anatomy into wearable art, producing gender-neutral clothing that invokes carnage whilst remaining intricately constructed, crafting corsets, dresses and accessories that appear to drip with blood and flesh. Having amassed significant attention towards their work online, Lena M Áine has now launched their own brand, using social media to connect with fans of the label and unveil the storytelling behind their vision. With the likes of Julia Fox and Rico Nasty being spotted sporting Lena M Áine creations, things only seem to be on the rise for the designer. Here, we talk to them about their background in fine art, modernising the industry into a direction that’s more gender-inclusive, and navigating the world of fashion.
