Suited & Booted

Here is a snippet from my current collections sketchbook. Inspired by the bright colours of retrofuturism and taking my utopian ideas from the dystyopian works from that time (60s/70s). I play with the use of colour in gender representation to create futuristic androgynous ideas. Part of my design path is leading me to a tailored suit! Pretty scary but I like the challenge, I’m  doing some work at saville row in two weeks so hopefully will learn a trick or two!

My beautiful fabric for the suit has arrived yet I am still very much in the toiling stages!

I reshaped my jacket and played around with the lapel, I am going with the latter
