This Is my Graduate Collection. I used print inspired by MRI scans of the brain and my own unique smocking techniques to create organic forms that distorted the body. I designed wearable body-con garments for these abstract pieces to be built on top of. My collection was shown on the Kingston University show at Graduate Fashion Week.
My inspiration came from a controversial art performance by a woman in France called Marion Laval-Jeantet. She built up a tolerance to horse plasma by having it injected into her body. “I had the feeling of being extra-human,” she explained. “I was not in my usual body. I was hyper-powerful, hyper-sensitive, hyper-nervous and very diffident.”
I was set a brief to explore the codes of dior, structure and cut being paramount to create a range of cocktail and evening wear that would be appropriate for a ready to wear collection considering dior pret a porter is almost at couture level in attention to detail, embroidery and finishings . Re interpret the iconic silhouettes into a modern femininity.
