My collection for 2010 is inspired by a place i have been longing to visit since i was a child. It has fascinated me with its colors, wildlife and magnificence. The eeriness that exudes from it and the danger that the wild animals present inspired the collection entitled Rainforest by Night. The Amazon rainforest is a vast area filled with exotic creatures such as the jaguar, spider monkeys, and tree frogs, just to name a few (my favs). The colors and textures of the animals inspired the colors and textures of the fabrics for the dirndls and the rainforest birds became in the inspiration for the headpieces.
