I have been invited to have my designs featured in a runway during Paris Fashion Week. My designs were inspired by the Paris terror attacks and the events of the world around us. The tragic scenes we wake up to every morning. The main theme that ran through the entire horrific event in Paris, was the mass of ordinary people who stood up and did extraordinary things, in the light of a serious tragedy. Although the days of conscription are dead and gone, just being alive in this time, you need to be prepared for a war every time you walk out of your door. The world is getting darker and darker & the only real hope for everyone is each other. We are all part of an army fighting against the odds and for each other. My menswear collection propels the idea of the Everyday Soldier. It uses military inspired details with the implementation of them through modern streetwear.
As I am a recent graduate, it has been difficult to raise the funds needed to be apart of this life changing event. The cost covers the models, the hair and make up, the venue and hire of other runway essentials. This is truly a dream come true and it is even more exciting to be shown, as a professional designer in the same place that inspired my collection.
I appreciate everyone's donations and am truly blessed by the people surrounding me, that have already reached out wanting to help me make my dreams come true. Thank you for visiting my page and an even bigger Thank you for your donations.
