It feels like it’s been a age of waiting and secrecy but a few weeks ago, my design collaboration with Voodoo Vixen was finally released! I was so excited when they asked me last year if I’d be interested and of course I jumped at the opportunity.
Early on in the process, I had to think really hard about what sort of vibe I wanted the collection to be. I loved that it was to be for the Autumn/Winter range as I love winter clothing and everything that comes with it… especially coats! I felt like I wanted to have a collection that wasn’t obviously mine- so many people would expect purple or flowers but I love so many other things when it comes to vintage inspired fashion.
Tartan was a pretty obvious choice for winter, it’s one of my favourite things to wear during the cold season. I loved the idea of monochrome since grey can be a under utilised colour in vintage reproduction, that’s what we decided to go with after looking at several versions of grey tartans. I also picked out the colours for the contrasting panels and coat, and things started coming together.
We ended up settling on 5 final items – a coat, full circle dress, wiggle dress, top and full circle skirt. It’s a cohesive collection that works really well together and versatility was key throughout the whole process – for instance the faux fur on the cuffs and collar of the coat are completely removable and while it looks great fully done up, it can also be work open like I have here.
All in all, I think it’s ended up being a complete success and was very excited to hear from the team at Voodoo Vixen about how well it’s done. Some items have already sold out but there’s to be a restock in October so don’t worry if you missed out!
