My inspiration for this collection derived from the archetypes of Carl Jung. In particular: the shadow, the persona and the self. Real pressed flowers are encapsulated in contrasting pleated plastic with the same flowers printed and embroidered onto silks. Each garment forms part of a narrative that represents the human evolution of consciousness that altogether create a glamorous, modern yet functional collection.
These sketchbook pages have a formal, organised, uncluttered presentation style, with a minimal use of colour. Items are positioned carefully, allowing each piece of the design process to be appreciated fully. The project contains a thorough investigation of detail and pattern, with first-hand observation of moths and butterflies informing subsequent designs.
