Some of my favorite sources of fashion inspiration stem from the ordinary, common scenes we see everyday. Like provincial gardens that are filled with random shrubs, makeshift fences, wildflowers, vegetables and insects, and that influence me to create dresses and gowns with a certain whimsy and naiveté (like a tulle ballgown butterfly aviary).
Inspiration is everywhere if we just take time to look around!
