This collection is a display of my own aesthetic, a desire for accuracy and applying Couture and tailoring techniques into my designs.
The inspiration behind the portfolio collection was drawn from an internal reflection of my two worlds coming together.The dark, dominating world of kink and erotica equally aligning with the desire for elegance and sophistication.With compliments to the human form and very subtle, complimenting hints to the Georgian era.
Associating Modernism and Brutalism Architecture into the designs which can be depicted in the structure of each piece, the reoccurring angular cuts used throughout and the repetition which is used through the panelling. Then taking all of this and marrying it with soft, delicate fabrics and contrasting with strong silhouettes, metal zippers and dark fabrics.
I worked predominantly with fabrics that felt desirable – strong, but lush and also used fabric that I had not used before to better understand and learn about their characteristics.
