Womenswear Designer / Illustrator/ Artist


My final graduate collection 'Viva La Vida' was influenced by the life of the Mexican artist Frida Kahlo. The main inspiration was derived from my research into the dark side of Kahlo's life, that was filled with pain, suffering and restriction. These elements are reflected through the use of hard metal and rubber body accessories which encase the contrasting layers of sheer fabric. For this collection, I looked at how Kahlo's bold and colourful exterior contrasts with her small and fragile body and how she uses clothing as a tool to mask her imperfections.
