This was a live project with global forecasting trend agency colour hive. This was my personal response to the 2017 PUNK trend; my collection features constructed plastic flowers, abstract print and placement embroidery pieces. All photography is my own.
Trend Statment: If humans can change the perception of themselves why can't nature? To challenge the unconventional beauty in the midnight garden, flowers are stripped of their grace and desecrated with materials, print and stitch. Beauty is questioned as florals transform in to abstract objects and natural bloom is buried beneath. Warped plastic and bright colours create psychedelic visuals against layered delicate beading. Dramatic clustered arrangements are planted on top of reconstructed plastic to grow exciting statment peices.
