The collection provides luxury lingerie made from quality fabrics using delicate hand finished techniques to appeal to strong, intelligent women who want their intimate apparel to be as design led as their outerwear.
‘Dangerous Seduction’ was initially inspired by the representation of ‘Sirens’ from Greek Mythology in Pre-Raphaelite art. The range will encapsulate the feeling of a seductive woman who uses her sexual allure and intelligence to get what she wants, hypnotising people with her beauty, whilst remaining dangerous.
I wanted the colours to project eeriness, airiness, a link between the dark and the light, as shown in the paintings of the Sirens. I achieved through hand dying tassel with an ombre effect.
In the images of the Sirens hair plaits were a predominant feature, this fuelled research into horsehair braiding and plaiting as inspiration for textures. Braiding provides an element of texture to the collection, integrating and blending into the garment seamlessly. Alongside braiding, fine tassels will be used to replicate the idea of hair, fluidity and motion.
As a designer I’m primarily inspired by moods and emotions, and how these can be expressed through colour and texture.
