Specification / Characteristics
I got the inspiration for my first girl’s collection from my childhood memories of fairies. Fairies are mystical characters in our lives to fulfill our dreams. In my further research, I relate those fairies’ got colors to flowers, a delicacy from the wings of butterfly silhouettes from mushrooms, etc. in short fairies are a combination of beautiful nature. In my collection, I chose fairies of different colors mainly yellow, green, peach, pink, blue, white & black, and create a story about them how each fairy helps others. Color extraction for garments creation was taken from the flowers, butterflies, mushrooms, and nature. The fabric selection was silk, tulle, organza, and tissue, which defines the delicacy and smoothness of fairy’s wings. Silhouettes were extracted from the patterns of butterfly wings clusters of mushrooms and different shapes of flowers. Embellishments and prints were also inspired by the natural elements.
