CONTEXT: THE LIME CORDIAL
‘My collection focus was based around the word Nocturne, its a vivid trend exploring darkness that each one of us perceives, I wanted to explore with menswear and give it its own diversity the context of Nocturne is NIGHT the vivid tones showing through, nocturne encompasses the acceptance of all forms dark, such as sleep, death and bitterness. The overall themes of nocturne consists of altered states of the mind, blurring boundaries and experiencing Darker form, holding a context of FUR in fashion, fur a subject that no longer holds a TABOO definition, in acceptance I enjoy what Fur symbolises, the wealth and glamour and also the TABOO HISTORY IT ONCE HELD, as a designer I like to use high defined fabrics and give an impact to an audience and feel it should stand to a TREMBELLA.
