I’m parting with my tennis collection! It was once commissioned by the Lawn Tennis Association of Wimbledon and was displayed there for a summer event. They wanted a Central St Martins designer to do something funky which you could wear of the court. 🙂
My inspiration was mesh and elastic. I experimented with some fabrics and added colourful elastic bands all over. The jump-suit, for example, has elastic bands sewn into the fabric layers. And the long mesh skirt in picture no 2 can be adjusted in length as the elastic bands are pulled up. It was the first time for me to experiment with active wear – a very different are from couture dresses!
Have a look at my model friend and the shoot we did.
P.S. I know my model looks a tiny bit ‘off’ in some shots. She admitted that she had been celebrating her birthday the whole night long, and arrived at the shoot fairly hung over. Haha.
