I have been having a lot of trouble conveying my idea with the designs. I know the colours and fabrics I want to use but I think it would be helpful to bring in a style or era into my designs to make them stronger and link as a collection better.
I have been thinking about incorporating the 1950's style clothing. This would be a really interesting contrast to my nude, bondage collection. The 50's was a direct opposite to an androgynous, pan gender view on society. There were huge differences between gender and the way they dresses. The ideas about the sexes were very different to my target market, and I think it would be very interesting to have a contrast of a 50' cardy with a nipple pattern, and a see through dress. It could be a very interesting way to represent my gender.
