This collection was inspired by New York glamour during the 50’s. This was when the resurgence of haute couture occurred.
Style Clothing became an important part of culture in the 1950s, with the country going through many societal and cultural changes. It would showcase one's place in society more so than ever before and became a way to express conformity and individual identity.
In this collection I wanted to celebrate this time of true sophistication and how women began to test the boundaries of normality. Women wanted to accentuate their waste and were not afraid to show a little skin.
This collection is dedicated to paying tribute to the true sophistication, yet sexiness of the 50's.
Cacti For Dessert
This collection of prints was inspired by the cactus flower that you find in the desert. I wanted to portray the colors of the desert and the flower.
This collection of motifs and prints was inspired by the Victorian era. I wanted to take a modern perspective on and old theme when designing these motifs and patterns.
