Anglomania




Its no secret now that Im a huge fan of Vivienne Westwood and Alexandra McQueen, quintessentially British Design at its most eccentric. So when we were asked to design a piece that had an Anglomania vibe with an Equestrian theme for a special fashion expo in Barcelona rocking on one of Irelands edgiest hair groups Zeba we just jumped at the chance. You can see some of the styles that were also used for the Social and Personal Shoot below but one piece missed the editorial but made the show. I wanted to share the inspiration for this piece with you and some studio shots of the completed piece, hopefully getting it onto a model to show you guys at another time.

The idea was to take the British Red Coat and create a coat that was extremely feminine, with sexy tailoring and most importantly create a piece that could be rocked over a pair of simple black leggings and kickin shoes.

Its a little eccentric for most but I think this piece could really work given the right accessories. :)
