WOMEN’S SPRING/SUMMER 2005

This collection is a floral print, primrose yellow baby doll dress, finished with the signature leather harnessing, which demonstrates the play between power and vulnerability. The clothes were inspired by Picnic At Hanging Rock and have a dark theme.
WOMENS AUTUM/WINTER 2007
“IN MEMORY OF ELIZABETH HOWE, SALEM 19692”
The inspiration for this collection is the women who were hung during the salem witch trials, which also led into the exploration of witchcraft in general.
This intrigued me because I have a strong interest in witches, Harry Potter being the love of my life as I grew up, so naturally I’m interested in all things magical and supernatural.
