THE COLLECTION CONTRAST OF OPPOSITES*
*Eclectic, Textural, Colourful
7 looks - 12 pieces
Inspired by My own indecision and my love of conflicting things, my designer identity is - Contrast of Opposites, Fitted versus Oversized, Asymmetry opposed with Symmetry, Patterned and Solid Colour,Black, white and Accents of Colour,Two Halves that make a Whole.
Sponsored by I had a fabric shop in London called Crescent Trading sponsor me for my fabrics.
Key Pieces My last look which is entirely covered in horse hair that I created myself, another one is a dress made out of neoprene that I felted 3 times to completely change it and make it more textural, another important look is a matching top and trousers that I have covered in embroidery and tassels. These are my most textured looks.
I usually take inspiration from various self-produced textile manipulations and form explorations deriving from my own drawings and draping. I love creating flat 2D drawing and creating them in 3d trying to find the balance between volume and 2D.
The Customer A young, fun, carefree women who loves colour and isn't afraid of standing out.
**Colourful, Very British, Perfectionist
