Yes the leather feels and smells as good as it looks and yes I am planning on designing and making a very androgynous predominately black palette inspired by Medieval>Baroque period with a minimalist approach. I have been fascinated for years with Plague doctors, botanist illustrations, manuscripts etc. Starting off with a colour inspiration who else better to smash all over a black mood board better than Ann Demeulemeester (past and present)? With bits of Wang, Di$count, unknown sourced editorials floating around aswell.
Kinda crazy thinking about so much darkness in our hot Australian summer but I just know that my first collection design has to be androgynous, it is just my preffered style and it just feels, right? I will have you know I am designing and possibly making some of the designed pieces especially accessories, most will be one off designs and will mean alot to me. I hope to have some samples over the next few months.
Stay tuned for leather -

Sean left to go back to the army, I had a really relaxed summer with him. He said some pretty deep things to me this time and I need to remind myself to stay positive.
I love you all, thanks for always sticking with me even though I struggle to post monthly :( x
