The Transfigured collection revolves around the female silhouette of desire as represented throughout the eras, merged with the natural silhouette, to dismantle the association of what is and what was the desired female form. Throughout my practice there is always an underlining reference to historical silhouettes of the western world and different structural techniques referenced particularly in the late 18th - 19th centuries, such as panniers, crinolines and bustles. Combining these within the collection with visuals of the natural form together in a garment, helping to shed light onto the natural female figure, its beauty, and the contrast to these desired forms throughout historical periods. Further referencing these specific periods of time that the silhouettes are derived from, references of the design lines and embellishment placements throughout the specific gowns have also be drawn on to enhance the historical element within the designs. While I will always have ethical and sustainable practices in mind, when creating this collection my main objective was the celebration of the natural female form.
