Womenswear Spring/Summer 12/13
The adornment of the body is a portrayal of each fragment of the story of a contemporary Frida Kahlo. Glamour and grit, pain and love, freedom and restraint are contrasting themes depicted as characteristics of the heroine. Elements of the Day of the Dead culture are expressed in a feminine and artistic play on macabre imagery.
DANSE MACABRE is the harnessing of an imaginative spirit to create a collection of garments where each piece celebrates not only the narrative but also the woman. Key features include contrasting strong tailored leather pieces with textured, hand-printed volumous silhouettes and intricate crochet embellishment.
