I’m Tymone Winter and this is my Empire. I love working with natural materials, leather and silk, brass and chrome. Creating new shapes and textures by hand makes my heart breakdance! I’m inspired by rock’n’roll, laughter, and all the wild and wonderful cultures I encounter travelling around the world, making costumes for films, the RNZB ballet, and you. I want my pieces to be works of art, like the women who wear them.
