It is done!
Well, actually... it's not completely done, as I still have one more design in the works, but I know I don't have the time to get it done today so I'm leaving it out.
My inspiration for this collection was -obviously- fairy tales and folklore. I wanted a scandinavian & slavic feel to the designs and my inspiration relied heavily on the look of traditioinal clothes from both cultures. To keep with the somewhat woodsy & folksy theme, I kept the materials natural with wool, linen, cotton and felt being the main fabrics used.
The main colours are:
The colour scheme came out much more limited than I first set out to use, and were I to do this over again, I'd add a few more colours into the mix.
This collection is simple and functional, meant for someone who doesn't want to have to fuss over their clothes and who appreciates comfort and practicality. The F&F girl is very close to her family and roots, she enjoys nature in every form and she doesn't take life too seriously. She's whimsical and quirky and she enjoys her life to the full. She might even believe in fairies!
This is the order (left to right) the models would take to the runway. The music should be something with a scandinavian/slavic feel to it, possibly something folksy sounding like Värttinä
. The runway would be decorated with pine and birch trees so it'd look like the models were walking through a forest.
Here's a little "work in progress" shot of the collection: [link]
