Birmingham Fashion Week 2016
Emerging Designer Competition
Walking the Runway
The collection for Birmingham Fashion Week was a continuation from my senior Thesis. My Heraldic medieval inspiration remained the same while some color choices, details, and silhouettes were altered. This competition was a wonderful growing and learning experience since the rules stated it was to be a completely solo project. All designs choices and construction were created and managed by myself with no other input. All choices from music, model casting, hair, makeup, fashion and of course accessories were left to my creation and discretion.
Above and below are a few featured items from the eight piece collection.
The "Baskin" Mules
Navy blue silk and gold leather mules embellished with re-purposed mink fur.
The "Coyne" Purse
A hand-dyed cross body bag with my logo laser cut and gilded onto the front.
