Making of LITTLE TICH, AW 14/15

 

My Autumn winter 1415 inspiration raised from a piece of article that fell into my hands on the primitive cinema and live performances during the Edwardian Era and the influential performer and male impersonator and comedian Little Tich, who was a 4 foot 6 inch tall English comedian and dancer during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Exploring the Edwardian era, zooming into the life of working class woman I found an absolutely worth looking into issues like poverty among women, domestic female servants, woman’s mobility and birth control and a great passion for the era’s visual poverty has came up. All this led me looking into the modification in women’s dress during the Edwardian era, which was the last time women wore corsets in everyday life. I explored typical garment patterns of working woman, poor children, dolls, convicts, the use of petticoats, quilted fabrics and under structures. AW1415 collection contains tailored and semi tailored garments, luxury day wear and evening.
