JEAN PAUL GAULTIER for EVANS
Dismissing general attitudes towards plus size fashion, but rather celebrating the “feel good in your own skin” ethos, Peek-A-Boo & Kickin' Curves S/S 15 is a sexy-kitsch occasionwear collection which sensualize women's curves, while at the same time respecting the criteria that affects their confidence.
For the positivity, enthusiasm and mind-openess Jean Paul Gaultier's work is known and loved for, I decided to bring his spirit to the British shape-specialist store Evans . This work was completely tailored on my muse Jess Daphne Milton, a gorgeous and charismatic UK size 18, who also modelled the collection.
My main inspiration sources for this exciting design adventure were the homo-erotic kitsch film "Pink Narcissus" for fabric and colour, the luscious textures of Pierre&Gilles' photographs and the voluptuous draped silhouttes of 1930's Hollywood divas.
