on a rainy monday like this, there is nothing better than getting a warmed up with a skim latte and sitting in front of the computer screen looking at inspirational work. go to http://www.fashiondesignuts.com/ to view some of the other students work from our graduating year of UTS Design (Fashion and Textiles).
ps. leaving you with another beautiful shot of Amber from my collection shoot,
I think after agonizing and refining my drawings i am becoming a little boring out of fear/stress/tiredness. Time to look back on original inspiration and mentors and remind myself what this collection is all about, to get the spirit back!
Tao is one of my mentors because of her spontaneity and youthfulness. This collection of fall 09 has been saved on my computer for ages. It’s not my aesthetic exactly, but this designer obviously sticks to her original motive whilst pushing her ideas as far as she can with print, embellishment, volume and head to toe styling!!
McQueen had a running theme of death through many collections… symbolized by skeletons and skull heads. The second image is from 1994, the silver ribcage was cast from the female form, it is probably one of his most famous examples of death in his designs. See Caroline Evans, Fashion at the Edge
