My work is based on my love of textile and embellishment

My final collection is based on my own family and their italian heritage. I decided to look through my familys life during the 1920's onwards during there time spent in italy before imigrating to england . My inspiration was based on the diversion of the rich and poor of italy by combing the use of my fabrics used such as lace  and fur which bring that glamourous and elegant feel and combining with the plaid and wool textures from the south .I also brought in my love of textiles into my collection with the use of beading,embroidery and aplique i also used a techinique using chiffon and fraying it back to create a more layed back and care free feel .
