Olivia was inspired by the mythological story fantasy's of goddesses and finding identity through sisterhood
Exploring through textile embelishments, digital print and silhouettes to portray two different identities within this collection. Inspiration of finding yourself through growing up with siblings and finding who you are and who they are for when going into adulthood to portray individual, unique idenitity.
My concept of this collection is focused on the mythology story of two goddess sisters and how their powers as well as their personality trates through their identity. I wanted to create each outfit look to represent both sisters individually with being inspired by Greek renaissance paintings, theatrical elements combined with ultra-femininity style aesthetic. This collection is also pushed towards childrenswear such as costume/event occassions as there is a lot of playful element to this collection.
I was interested in the textile and digital print designing throughout this collection as I wanted to explore detail elements from artists and artwork that had inspired me throughout this collection.
I purposly chosen to digitally design my prints for my collection as I would be in control with the sourcing and the fabric choices as well as the design specifically. I feel that it is important to involve sustainability as much as possible in any industry although I haven't specifically used home resources or up-cycling, I have chosen wisely of the materials and the way I went about construction and the left overs. I used left over fabrics to create the clutch handbags as well as the patchwork overlay onto the ponch and only having one small bag of left overs is an improvement to the environment in which I can use for future sampling. I experiemented throughout this collection within textiles as it was the main details of the garments features such as the embroidery, 3D bonda web butterflies and hand beading which has given this collection an extra touch of luxury/boudoir elements.
