Created in early 2016, the name “Float” was agreed upon on the basis that both partners did not want to be labelled or categorised. This attitude, to float between the stereotypical societal labels, allows for individuals to balance their interests, surrounding themselves with different people, being forever intrigued and constantly fascinated.
Find your float at the studio in Woodstock, The Watershed, The Strangers Club, The Old Biscuit Mill, The House Planner, or online. We love these looks:
