Since 2002 Maryanne Munteanu has worked as an
independent designer. Her label 'Gathered Pieces' has
become a contemporary design studio for concepts in
fashion, interior design, textiles and art. The creations are
defined by innovative concepts, as she combines
modernism with authenticity.
The creative process for Gathered Pieces begins by
draping recycled natural fibre fabrics, combined with
machine knitted samples to see immediately whether or

Shunning the six-month cycles of the fashion calendar,
'Gathered Pieces' aims to create garments that are timeless
