A-Level Art Coursework:
This piece was a mixed media collage inspired by the work of Salvador Dali and experimentation with burning and charring materials. I produced this as part of one of my projects which was based on a theme of resistance to burning:

Nowadays it is common for most designers to include an LBD in their collections, and are now available in an array of shapes, styles, lengths and designs. Personally I am a huge fan of the LBD and have a rather large and still growing collection of them in my wardrobe. For me you can't go wrong with an LBD, it will always be suitable for whatever the occasion, flatter the figure and make you feel good! As Christian Dior said, that black is "The most popular and the most convenient and the most elegant of all colours". Below are a couple of famous little black dresses from the past and a photo of a black dress which I made as part of my A-Level course.

It was around this time whilst I was producing these pieces that Dolce & Gabana brought out their S/S 2008 RTW collection inspired by the idea of freedom painting and the work of artist and filmmaker Julian Schnabel (pictured below).
Many of the pieces in the Dolce & Gabbana S/S 08 collection featured garments splashed with strokes of colour, applied to parchment canvas, tulle and 50s inspired organza ball-gowns. This technique of applying colour in a loose and care-free manner is similar to the one which I used when applying the colour to my canvases. Below are some of my favourite pieces from the collection.
