In THE ABYSS Collection every piece is unique and has emotional content. I found the right inspiration and mood in the black fashions of the Victorian era. I wanted to maintain the aristocratic appearance while the dark attributes of the era anchored the actual atmosphere and feeling of the entire collection. I was inspired by Sarah Forbes Bonetta’s character, beautiful photographs of “high rank” looking black women and men dressed no different than upper or even lower-class White Brits even if most of them lived in near destitution. All the above mentioned seen through my own perspective and applied to my own vision.
