The Retro Look!

Doro Olowu Spring 2011

One of my favourite designers. What I love about this collection, is the simplicity of it, and yet very chic!
I have have two things in common with Doru; The style, and the love of crazy prints, to summarise this, I call it timeless chic! You either love it or you don't.
Less is more!

Mad print! Just totally in love. This print is kind of similar to my print which you will see very soon, just watch this space. I know some of you have already seen it, just as mad as this one.
Block colours is my trade mark I suppose.

Love the cut, and the clashing of prints, just super!

The bang-on Green is fantastic!

Totally Retro!!!!

Out of Eden Collection

I am mostly inspired by architecture. Out of Eden is another one of my collection that was inspired by Eden project, the world's largest greenhouse in Cornwall, United kingdom.
I called this collection Out of Eden, because of the initial design inspiration, but I also looked at different architectures for references.

The birds eye view of Eden project.

Introducing to you selected pieces of my work just to give you an idea of the work that goes behind the collection before it goes out to the public. My best moment in designing, is research. I thoroughly enjoy the build up of the collection through research and gives me satisfaction to see what I finally come up with as a complete collection.

A sample inspired by the view

 Sample on a mannequin to give you an idea of technical possibilities

This is another sample made of quilting, ideal for autumn/winter wear.


.....and with leather.
