"Autumn Rose" Collection // Photoshoot

Here are the photos from the photoshoot that I did with my clothes last Wednesday. 

This collection is called "Autumn Rose

Here is my speech from the night of the Fashion Show: 

I've stuck with a soft colour palette, which includes lots of pinks, yellows and beiges. I was inspired by the 40s and 50s which have a very feminine element attached to that era. I've incorporated lots of floaty dresses and skirts to reflect that. I also decided to branch out and make some high waist pants, one with a ruffled hemline and one with a scalloped bottom.

Each piece has a particular detail that makes it unique whether it be lace sleeves, a corset back laced with ribbon or a detailed neckline. Every piece is also a one off that only comes in one size.

This collection is a reflection of my own taste, which is quite girly and elegant and everything I've created is something that I would wear. 

When I was designing the dresses for this collection there was a quote I came across that inspired me, it said: "Your dress should be tight enough to show you're a woman, but loose enough to show you're a lady." This describes my dresses as they pull you in at the bust and the waist, which are the parts you'd like to show off and skim over the hips in a floaty style. Each piece is flattering for a woman's body.

Fashion Design is something that I’ve wanted to do since I was six years old and I enjoy taking a hands on approach, which includes drawing the picture, drafting the pattern to create my own shapes and then finally sewing it together. Its so rewarding to see a picture turn into a piece of clothing that can be worn.
