These images show a jacket constructed using nonwoven material that I designed, pattern cut and made as part of a group project. It is inspired by the McQueen reptile collection- i love the silhouette and convex sleeves.

Here are a couple of photographs taken at the Butterfly Park, Long Sutton, along with a painting. I am a bit scared of butterflies and moths, but managed to get some decent photographs!

This collection was more about "the woman in the room" stated the designer. "It's more fluid, more real." Katrantzou imagined the woman as a connoisseur, surrounded by objects including Fabergé eggs, Meissen porcelain, cloisonné enamel, and Ming vases. And all of these reproduced in hyper-vivid prints.

Elie Saab was as pretty and feminine as expected, but today he displayed a lighter touch than in recent seasons and the dresses were all the better for it.
'A pale palette of nude, pink and beige – as well as a new pale-grey-to-the-point-of-white shade that appeared at Chanel and Givenchy as well this week – accentuated the new delicacy and allowed flashes of green, red or black to shout even louder.' Vogue
"It was much lighter and much prettier as a result," said fashion director Lucinda Chambers after the show. "Even the embroidery was less heavy on lovely chiffon full length dresses – he has a new focus and it suits him."
I love all of his work, especially the small details and feminine touch, with draping chiffons and satins. He is definitely one of my favourite designers, along with John Galliano and McQueen.
