About MeHi, I'm Rachael Forbes; the designer and managing director of The Imaginarium Apparel. Having studied a performance costume degree I wanted to combine theatre led ideas and my intrigue in the darker aesthetic.
My designs are inspired by the amazing insects and amphibians around us and are intended to represent a little of their strange power and exoticism; translated into apparel with much consideration and workmanship that I hope you will appreciate.
