Indeed. Right. The idea backing this project was to find a vintage item and let this choice decide the theme and design of the project. I rummaged my mums wardrobe and came out with a cape like dress, with dropped rounded shoulders, a ruffled velvet skirt and a high zipped neck ski thermal.
From the silhouette formed by the three garments combined, I felt I should research into the Edwardian era, round 1905- 1912. What I produced, design wise, from my research is what you can see below, four items of my collection.
Food: Tapas from Lemonia, Primrose hill

'He was an unreliable man. For our first date he showed up one year late. Therefore, when he left, to make sure he would come back, I insisted that he leave something with me as a hostage. A week later he sent me his most precious possession: a small french nineteenth- century painting, entitled The Love Letter, that portrays a young girl who bears an uncanny likeness to me. A year passed, and on January 18th, 1992, after having rented two rings an a witness, I became his bride in a simple ceremony held at a 24-hour drive-up wedding window on route 604 in Las Vegas. Later he gave me The Love Letter as a wedding gift. I had acquired a husband but in the process had lost my guarantee that he would always come back to me.'
