Graduate Catwalk Collection
A SURREAL ROME
''My concept is not a representation of reality, but a surreal world in which you may find in your dreams, inspired by the history, myths and art of Rome. Inspired by my trip to Rome, Italy in the summer, I was fascinated by the sculptures, paintings and architecture of the Trevi Fountain, Sistine Chapel, Colosseum and the Doria Pamphilj Palace. I learned about ancient Rome, Roman gods and goddesses and mythical creatures, which gave me ideas about creating my own mythical creatures and beings in a surreal world. I have combined my large expressive paintings together with distorted photographs I took in Rome, into colourful busy prints, to create a visual of A Surreal Rome.
My collection includes The Trevi Fountain Dress, The Colosseum Knit, The Surreal Suit, The Mythical Beings Knit, The Roman Goddess Dress and The Angel Dress.''
