So for our first project of semester 2, we have been asked to create an extravagant and unusual piece of catwalk jewellery. Which has been inspired by a culture or specific period in time.
Over the christmas holidays i spent quite a lot of the time looking into carious fashion shows and i have to say i extremely enjoyed this part of this project! however i found that deciding on which or what culture/time a little bit more difficult! So after a LOT of humming and hoeing i finally made the decision to go with the Victorian era. So far i looked at the architecture, gables, handles, letter boxes, fashion and some jewellery. I love the huge bums and tiny waists that are all over the fashion in the victorian era!
This is an example of a page from my sketchbook.
