Inspired by 1950’s couture, this collection strongly focuses on traditional silhouettes and creating a structured “feminine” hourglass shape. My interest in traditional construction techniques was an important part of deciding how to execute the silhouettes as well as which textiles would be chosen to keep the garments relevant in a contemporary space. I dedicated my collection to my mother, Henriette, as she had a big influence in introducing me to vintage couture and fashion as a whole. Her glamour and chic style were key in forming my personal aesthetic, as well as that of my collection.
I’d also like to thank my tutor, David, for helping refine my work and pushing me to develop a better understanding of design.
