Courtney’s first commercial collection, YARD DAYS AREN’T OVER (long live buttoned shirts and whiskey), is themed around reinventing key pieces that men, universally, cannot live without. McWilliams has a flair for the eclectic; mixing street-style with luxury materials, masculinity with femininity and quirky with sophisticated. Her main inspiration is based on a fascination with chavs and the collection will feature a range of styles, from bold printed tracksuits adorned with pit-bull terriers to sharp tailoring, using a range of fabrics that includes printed denim, lace and superfine wools.

The house features an L-shaped design. Designed for small families, the two-story prefabricated modular home can be integrated into a large housing development. The design plans emphasized on the acoustics and visual permeability of its public areas to support family life. The circulation space of the home has been made into an interesting and useful space, which forms a key part of the house plan.
