The above images are taken from my college project ‘Viktor & Rolf, Alice in Wonderland’.
Researching the background of V&R inspired me to create a garment that i feel they would have made.
The result was a raincoat shape, with high collar neck, leg of mutton sleeves and cape features front & back. I chose black wool/felt and red crushed velvet, that enhanced the richness and created a Queen like appeal.
The trim buttons add extra class as well as the red trim around the edges of the cape additions.
I also made a bag to match, with the V&R logo.
Oh, i almost forgot the lining!!! It’s amazing… Gold and black spot. Infact i bought the fabric from a curtain shop, but i feel in love straight away and knew it would look great.
I have a portfolio of all my work and my journey throughout the making process. It’s quite sentimental looking back over it all, but nothing could prepare me for the Final Major Collection. I’ll tell you more later…
