"Imagine If..." is the title of my collection and here you can read the concept
and idea behind the design.
Furthermore I present the first outfit, consisting of flared trousers and a blouse with trimmings, embroidery and lots of glitter ✨.
The Womenswear FW 17/18 Collection „Imagine If…” is dealing with the relationship between Elvis and Priscilla Presley. It analyses the origin of their feelings for each other and the developing solidarity between them. Having the roots already in childhood where Priscilla is imagining that she will marry Elvis Presley, the wedding grows an aim to achieve in her life. It’s not all about a “fairy tale relationship”: Priscilla is abandoned in Graceland while Elvis is following his career in the world of Hollywood. A contrast between the life of a star and his good wife at home.
The design itself is oriented towards Elvis stage dresses embodying a world of freedom and joy, the world Priscilla is dreaming about. Instead Priscilla is trapped with her childish fantasies for Elvis. Pretending to be the good wife for him: humble, reserved and virgin.
