Claudia Dare


"The concept of beauty inspired my first practical. Drawing on my substantial background in fashion design, I wanted to create something wearable, but inspired purely by aesthetics. While fashion is heavily reliant on models, my piece disregards the wearer’s form, gender or features, using the model as a frame for the garment’s movement. When brainstorming different concepts, I was particularly attracted to the contrast between natural and synthetic beauty. For example, flowers and pearls convey natural delicacy, whereas Art Deco architecture, another inspiration for this project, is geometric, sharp and precise."
