IT’S ALL IN THE DETAILS…

So..in summary, this collection is breathtaking. After taking over the house of McQueen, Sarah Burton turned to what inspires and heals us…nature. The collection is amazing from far away, but to grasp the intensity and pure beauty of these garments one really needs to see the garments in person(don’t we all wish) or check out the detailed photographs available(thank you style.com & vogue!). As a textile designer, the textures and materials used are a huge source of inspiration and will definitely influence my work for future collections. Enjoy these photos I put together and look for more to come in the next few days…

DON’T FORGET ABOUT THE HEELS!

Usually prints are confined to the lining or the sole of the shoe, but how awesome are these printed satin heels?

PATTERN INSPIRATION

One of my favorite places for inspiration is National Geographic. Their photographs are amazing and every time I visit the site I learn something new about our planet. You can see more photos here.
