A collaboration with Stephanie Allin,
A Bridal Couture Company that proudly creates their product in the UK.
Creating 2 garments - A Wedding Dress & an Evening Dress based on their current Bridal Collection 2018 - La Vie en Rose
With the theme of "La Vie En Rose", my research led me to look at the era of the 1950s where I was inspired by influential artists that became well known at this time, such as Yayoi Kusama and Georgia O'Keeffe as well as influential designers - Christian Dior and Balenciaga.
My garments were designed with the influence of Christian Dior & Balenciaga's exotic couture pieces from 1950s.
My 2nd Project was to create a costume for 1 particular character - Scaramouche Jones by Justin Butcher.
Out of The Seven White Masks of Scaramouche Jones, through my research, I had chosen the 4th Mask as my key theme.
Taking inspiration towards Venice and the Venetian Masked Culture as the key location of the story and the time frame of the 1930s - I have created 3 garments - A Tailcoat, A Waistcoat and A Trouser.
The designs are based on the diverse characteristics of Scaramouche Jones such as the intricate embroidery taken from intricate designs of gypsies as he himself, is part of the gypsy culture.
