This is a collection of images from the Rochas S/S catwalk 2015. I spent time in France during Paris Fashion Week. I absolutely love Paris and was so excited to be working behind the scenes, as this was my very first Fashion Week. I met models Daphne Groeneveld and Lindsey Wixson, both beautiful and unique looking girls. The clothes were beautifully designed, and it was great to see them close up, especially as a designer. I'm really into net fabric lately, so to see them use it was inspiring for my own designs.

In september I attended the Guy Larouche show which was located inside the Grand Palais. I worked behind the scenes, seeing the rehearsal and the show itself. The clothes were perfectly finished, it was one of my favourite shows. The designs were simple but extremely chic and elegant, it had the quality and style you would expect to see at Paris Fashion Week.
Here is the designer Marcel Marongiu with his opening models.

At the end of August I began making a white leather coat, I wanted to use the leather to make interesting shapes, experimentation lead me to creating leather flowers and snowflakes. I thought it was cute and whilst the flowers could imply summer, I think the snowflakes gave it an icy, wintery feel.

Here's a recent outfit (a bit warm for the LA weather) but who cares.. I got the skirt from a vintage shop in Hollywood Vine called 'Iguana Clothing'. It's a huge shop stacked full of vintage clothing. My kind of place! Most of what they have is reasonably priced as well. I also got a vintage military hat for 10 dollars which I love..
Here is a dress I made using a similar technique to my metallic leather skirt except I used a much thinner net fabric which shimmers and reminded me of the night sky, very in tune to the space aesthetic style which influenced the collection. Yet the garment has classic/vintage shape, contrasting the futuristic theme. The sketch below shows my original idea before working on the garment. (Obviously with this dress an undergarment would need to be worn! Its Extremely transparent material!!)
Here are a few images to show the development of a collection I created for a promotional campaign in my final year of university. I used lots of shimmering fabrics and metallic leather fabrics which I experimented with to create something futuristic with shape. I also experimented with fake furs, the dip dye affect, and fabric graffiti spray. I was influenced by space aesthetics and futuristic creations.

Here's a dress I made over the past couple of days. I had hoped to pick up a collection of chains to wear with it, but i have yet to find any. The material has a dip dyed effect which makes it very bohemian, I love a bit of boho. I wanted the skirt to be quite choppy and quirky. Underneath theres a bronze leather underskirt to create lift, and also privacy as the material is very see through! And to finish i had to wear my illuminati necklace..
