Most of my artwork and clothing designs come from dreams or distinct images that appear in my mind.
The concept of this dress grew over time.
It started out with the exaggerated hips and then I thought about making a plastic belt with the skirt attached to it almost like a curtain.
I have always been fascinated with the combination of red and purple. They are beside each other on the colour wheel, so in alot of ways they work and yet it's very intense to look at.
It wasn't intentional, but now I see the finished piece there's definitley a middle eastern influence going on.
