Ophelia's Reverie follows the journey of a woman through the desert into a tropical paradise; the collection draws inspiration from desert and tropical plants and Pre-Raphaelite imagery and narratives. The garments feature hand embroidery techniques including tambour beading and stumpwork embroidery. Each garment is made entirely from silk with the emphasis being on drape and lightness.
Next I will post photos of the jewellery pieces which I made to go alongside the collection of garments.
