I am truely amazed at these images, thank you so much Angela from Butterfly Bones. You have created images that really encapsulate my collection’s story and spirit. The hair was done gorgeously by Nathan at Toni&Guy Parramatta. Not to mention the stunning model Jessica, thank you so much.
This collection, Vailea, is about exploring the idea of memories. The collection’s aim is to evoke feelings of warmth, comfort, love and protection… And the awakening of feelings from a favorite time in your past. The memory I recalled was traveling to the north qld coast and swimming in the inspiring great barrier reef. The coral provide this protection for the sea life it shares it’s home with. This idea was represented visually by creating coral like shapes from manipulated fabrics with techniques such as tucks, shirring and smocking in organic irregular patterns to create shape, in essence creating safe places for the wearer to hide.
