Having purged her anger with the pain experienced by the Welsh people during the industrial revolution through the manifestation of her pre-collection, the collection was softer, calmer and lighter.
While still being aware of the unfair treatment of the Welsh people, the collection focussed on the strength, humility and courage of the Welsh people. It was the strong sense of community, willingness to sacrifice and the bravery of people during this time that defined them.
Still using fabrics from one of the last surviving mills in Wales, Melin Teifi, Laura created a collection of contrasts; strong silhouettes wrapped in soft layers and eclectic traditional Welsh patterns.
