Artist's statement:
"A sleek, modern collection with Op Art-inspired block colouring using black, white, grey and orange as key colours. Visually, I will be taking inspiration from Modernist Architecture for shape and cut as well as capturing my own brand by focusing on key designers who I strive to be like; such as Céline and Stella McCartney, designers that I have always respected & admired. My ideal woman becomes confident through her clothes, she’s warm and inviting letting her modernist straight lined garments show her empowered side. Texture is introduced to my collection in the form of knit, to balance the modernist lines. I will aim my key market towards the retail company COS, aiming for an A/W RTW Woman’s Wear 2013 collection.
The white wool crepe jumpsuit is a key piece of the collection, as the elongated lines create height and visual impact, emphasizing my inspiration of modernist buildings. The jumpsuit plays a key role standing tall against the rest of the collection, portraying stature yet showing elegance."
