The brief was to design a collection based on 'Englishness' and to focus on outerwear and leather.
I decided to research into gardens as a subject. I discovered Lionel de Rothchild and his early colour photographs of his home, Waddesdon Manor.
The photographs depict Edwardian England to be unusually bright and colourful, and so I have used this idea to revitalise camouflage print with garden hues creating floral camouflage. While also softening military outerwear with Edwardian volume and stitch detailing.
