My collections inspiration derives from a combination of things. The initial source was from a scene featured in Baz Lehrmans Romeo and Juliet in which Romeos best friend dresses up in drag and sings Candi Statons disco hit “Young hearts”. I took inspiration from my hero David Bowie and his ever lasting and constant ability to redefine what a man can be and how he can present him self through clothing. The ultimate goal was to see how far I could push what a menswear collection is by selecting techniques mainly featured in “female” based clothing and using a colour pallet and fabric selection which wouldn’t necessarily be seen featured heavily in a menswear collection. There are deliberate decisions within my collection which are an obvious contradiction, for instance naming it “The Sad Boys” whilst visually it is something quite garish and seems to celebrate fun and quirkiness was something heavily considered.
