About Me

I'm Conor, a Fashion Design graduate from Cardiff Metropolitan

My designer fingerprint has always had a dark and erotic undertone which I have always embraced and highlighted in my work, alongside with a relevant constant link to pop culture which is something I am passionate about. This is prevalent throughput my work especially in my major fashion project and my BooHoo competition.

The concept for this project circulates around women’s contribution to dark subject matters which link to destruction, while at the same time an expression of anger and aggression. The inspiration for this project began with my research on witchcraft and specifically women in witchcraft and their representation in pop culture. This lead me to be inspired heavily by Charli xcx’s album ‘Crash’ which is centered around destruction, sex and selling your soul for ‘money and fame’. This album perfectly linked to my concept so a lot of the dark and sexual imagery which inspired my silhouettes.

INSPIRATION

The concept for this project circulates around women’s contribution to dark subject matters.

The inspiration for this project began with my research on witchcraft and specifically women in witchcraft and their representation in pop culture. This lead me to be inspired heavily by Charli XCX’s album ‘Crash’ which is centred around destruction, sex and selling your soul for ‘money and fame’.

This album perfectly linked to my concept so a lot of the dark and sexual imagery which inspired my silhouettes and colour scheme. The fabrics also stemmed from the dark erotic themes I was looking into, with the PVC and chains representing the sexual undertones my work has, and then the flame print links back to my witchcraft research and how they were burnt at the stake.

DETAIL

Chain Detailing

The chain detailing adds and element of edge and movement to my work. It represents the dark themes that are presented throughout my work and links to my research.
