My aspiration to one day be residing and working as an accomplished fashion designer in london would be one of my great ambitions in life. My admiration for designers such as John Galliano, Vivienne Westwood, Thierry Mugler and Alexander Mcqueen, the legendary Christian Dior and the free flowing drapery of Madeline Vionnet continue to fascinate me as i hope to collaborate all of their techniques and establish my own eclectic style.
My style would probably be described as a variation of different techniques and methods taking inspiration from primarily vintage and past historical techniques such as draping, cutting, taioring, and beading. All of my work reflect what the meaning of elegance is, enhancing the female form rather than exposing it.
As i am still a student as school, i do not have enough money to purchase lavish fabrics and time is a luxury in relation to schoolwork. I make do with my resources and availability of fabrics. I have found that the best of fabrics come fro garage sales, opshops traveling, and heavy curatin brocades.
I also own a huge collection of lots of vintage furs, art deco wedding gowns, fur coats, costume jewellery, edwardian patterned cottons and silks, snakeskin handbags, and many other accessories acquired in my constant search for unique vintage pieces.
My main love is haute couture and the effort, work,detail, intricacy and extravagence. I believe more is more and if it is going to be worn ors on the female form it should be the most extravagant and over the top exquisite piece ever made. As the female form should be celebrated as a beacon of hope for all designers. I live for fashion and also appreciate well dressed and immaculate appearance.
I hope this website can assist me to broaden my contacts, help my other love of photography, develop my portfolio and meet other models, designer, makeup artists and everybody associated with the fashion industry.
