I designed an occasion wear line for young women, to transport them into a make-belief world and transform into another character, their alter ego.
Inspiration comes from my dad’s military-service scrapbook; illustrations of daydreaming and hallucinating. This concept of longing and desire is combined with research into Russian soviet film and animation such as The Scarlet flower and Barbra Fair with the Silken Hair. The collection’s colour scheme and silhouette were inspired by this.
Stark, hyper-saturated colours, combined with the overall concept of the metamorphosis of butterflies. Celebrates the ability to constantly change state of colour, texture, size and form.
