- What is the inspiration behind this collection?
The inspiration behind this collection was the Guggenhiem Museum. It was based on the architectural structure of the building. In order to create structure, a lot of quilting techniques were used along with other fabric manipulation techniques like cross-pleating, braiding etc.
- What is the theme behind this fashion shoot?
Since this collection was couture, we wanted to put the rough textures of the location in contrast to the fine detailing of the garment. This, I think, complemented the clothes.
- Where is this collection retailing?
This collection is available for order only through our studio. This was pure expression for the ramp. We do a defuse version of the collection for clients, making it lighter in terms of fabrication, adding embellishments and removing certain elements which makes it more wearable, while retaining the essence of the pieces.
