My inspiration was based on the tragic Haiti Earthquake devastation last year. The collection encapsulates the collapsed building structures within deconstructed
I have looked at collapsed buildings and adapted it into details for my dresses. Half dress, half coat garments present this idea. I have used a part of one garment and adapted into another garment to make an interesting outfit.
The print is the original research of a collapsed building. To create the print, I mixed the image with a flower pattern from a Victorian tea pot which I bought in a flea market.
I love everything about this collection from the colour pallet, the cut of the garments and the print. I have also fallen in love with the beautiful illustrations. Duong Nguyen is definitely one to watch and look out for.
