Nicole Kniss and Justin Johnson have put together an eye-catching set of handmade fashion pieces, which they unveiled at Launch, a design and music festival held in late July at the Greens Hotel. David Bowie, science fiction and ‘70s glamour all played a hand in inspiring these pieces. An energetic runway show, backed by dirty bass and ethereal visuals, heightened the experience. Kniss and Johnson have a reputation for putting on a good show, and they are now working to create one-of-a-kind pieces on commission. For more info check out their website at
