As an artist, fashion design has opened my eyes to exclusive means of communication that is unparalleled with other forms of expression. It is for this reason that I am both ambitious and committed to a career in fashion design.
This collection was created for my brand, 'D.SSENT' as part of the completion of my final major work in Branded Fashion Design.
"Through a historical framework D.SSENT searches for the origin of the ‘Dandy’ and in doing so, encounters the debonair aesthetics of ‘Les Incroyables’ and ‘Muscadins’ amid the end of the French Revolution. Moving forward to 1950’s London, the collection is met with the style and attitudes of the ‘Teddy Boys’. The cross-continental tension between modern and traditional styles is exhibited through D.SSENT’s execution of tailoring, draping, asymmetry, and scale." D.SSENT
