BA (Hons) Fashion
In homage of my Dad, ‘A Touch of Velvet, Sting of Brass’ is a collection that explores our common love of music and addresses my relationship with grief. Incorporating my passion for textile design, this collection features prints, and shapes inspired by my Dad’s jukebox.
I was heavily influenced by the music and fashion of the 70’s, looking into the style of artists including Stevie Nicks of Fleetwood Mac and the way in which she moved around the stage during her performances. Shirring became a main feature of my designs, manipulating the silhouette to emphasise the drape of the lightweight fabrics. Yellow is used within the collection to represent strength.
