Voltage 2011 Photo Story

The incredible crew for this shoot braved the cold on an early April day to capture my Spring 2011 collection. Marshall's fingers were stiff and Mary was frozen to her core. The ice on the lake is just breaking up. All dresses, blouses, jackets and pants are made from delicate silk chiffon. I quilted, tailored, printed and french seamed to give the looks depth and intrigue. See my inspiration post here.

Voltage 2011 Concept

While tailoring menswear-inspired garments, I developed an appreciation for how intricate and beautiful the internals of clothing can be. The interfacings, linings, padding and pockets that build structure and proper fit create wonderful multi-tiered elements that should be appreciated. By using sheers of differnt stiffness, weights and prints, I would like to expose the meticulously crafted secret aspects of garments that are seldom considered by the wearer.
