Amore Morte Halloween Fashion Show special

Its always a tricky escapade to create a 'fashion show'. There's trying to fit in the extra work in an already brimming over schedule, theme, music, choreography, accessories, lighting...and that's aswel as making the actual clobber.
But I love it, pure and simple love it! As soon as my girls are on stage the pressure is off me, and on them, phew! And then its all over...party time.

But, back to the beginning....

My inspiration for this show is deeply infused with the Victorian era, its shapes, colours, artists, texture, character. I am totally turned on by dark pinstripe, herringbone wool suitings, contrasting with brogue leather and bright rich silk with lashings of decadent trimming. I have been scouring costume sourcebooks for inspiration, adding a twist of pure seductive glamour and quietly nodding at steampunk for this collection. It has taken a few weeks to compile, simmer and reduce it down...and now it is almost realised...

The dead dolls poppy, absynthia and laudanum will be brought to life by their nefarious master and her dark magic and be commanded to strip to their fabulous underwear for her evil pleasure.

Hope you enjoy the show...
