fall winter collection 2012

Sheikha was wearing Armani Privé couture ensemble from the Fall Winter 2016 collection. We haven’t seen her wearing Armani since 2012, so this is big. Love the color and beautiful detail with the black knot. She had a matching Vhernier earrings.

Violet Visions: Karlie Kloss’ dress wraps around her in a pale blue wave of glistening chiffon and features a crystal dusted corset from the collection Versace Haute Couture Fall/Winter 2012 in an otherworldly shot for the editorial ‘Sweet Escape’ photographed by Nick Knight and styled by Edward Enninful for W magazine October 2012.

Maleficent 
Watercolor, sumi ink, graphite, and gouache. 

I don’t have much time to work on many personal pieces, so I’ve been working with this one here and there for quite a while. But I finally had a good amount of time with this piece, and I think this is as finished as it can get!

I was thrilled when the news broke that Disney’s Sleeping Beauty would see a live action remake from Maleficent’s perspective. I love the animated film, so I wanted to make a piece about this new take, and reimagine how I saw Maleficent as well.

Even though the new film doesn’t reach the same heights as the animated film, I was excited about it’s destruction of the villain myth. It shatters the all-evil identity of the original Maleficent in favor of a greater and more complex personality, and gives her character relatable motivations for revenge – assault, betrayal, and heartbreak.

The dress is loosely based on Giambattista Valli’s 2012 / 2013 fall and winter couture collection.
