Architecture and nature inspired the concept for my catwalk collection Luxe Swimwear à Monaco. Most of my research came from visiting London Zoo, The Science Museum, British Museum, Victoria and Albert Museum, in regards of print and silhouette inspiration. I wanted the final outcome of the prints to have an illusion of textured animal prints with elements of abstract painting , mixed and merging with solid architecture outlines. My final prints were mostly digital prints with laser cut acrylic, rings and pearls, beads as embellishment. In terms of the bags I used printed canvas and leather with gold trims to help enhance the print for the bags.
Luxe Swimwear à Monaco portray a powerful woman. She is confident, feminine and sophisticated. She could be a famous actress, singer or a rich women between the ages of early 20s to mid 40s . But upon reflection there something in this collection for a woman of any age . She wants to stand out in the crowd but still look sophisticated.
