No.1 ‘THE DEBUT’ Fittings for the first Show. Like a puzzle, I kept trying out different combinations to see what looked best. This would go on to inform all of my later work- the tweaking of the silhouette, pulling garments up and down the body to emphasize different parts, the mix of strong, elementary colours with neutrals, the draping of simple, everyday garments ( as opposed to elaborate eveningwear), the mix-and-match of knit and fabric, the surrealism and fetishism, the sporty influences, my obsession with the Trenchcoat and the Bomber, and the layering of different types and genres.
