Emily Caslli is a couture designer whose work is centered around a sustainable textile process they have developed and perfected where they grow crystals onto fabric in a variety of colors and textures. South of Heaven is inspired by their interpretation of the lyrical and sonic story in the 1992 Alice in Chains album, Dirt. Revolving around themes of metaphorically burying oneself alive, self-destruction, grief and loss, the narrative of the collection follows a journey into hell and persevering towards rebirth on the other side.
