Grandad We Love you!!
Fuelled by age discrimination, this collection celebrates a gentleman’s courage to overcome and fight prejudice directed towards him purely because of his age. A strong military theme encompasses the collection; representing man’s fight through life to succeed and overcome the battles and challenges he is dealt. This is achieved through referencing the elaborately embellished, costumes of the Tsars, as well as war time memorabilia.
The final garment juxtaposes refined fabrics such as leather and wool, in a palette of cerise, cardinal and black. With a focus on construction and the amalgamation of embellishment techniques the final garment will be rich in both historical and contemporary referencing, and will make a strong catwalk statement on the mature man’s struggle to overcome society’s mentality.
