Proportion is paramount on oversized tulle gowns, graphic airbrushed T-shirts and puffball party frocks. Feathers, diamante, bugle beads and exaggerated bows embellish every quiet moment into a cacophony of curated chaos. Trawling through old samples and dead stock, Ashley decided to up-cycle and down-cycle her references. She called forth Hogwarts school chum, the artist and designer Claire Barrow to collaborate on a ball gown, and they dismantled their past and put it back together in a beautifully wrong way.
This drag on a dime rides a rail between cheap and extravaganza, tacky and opulence. Acid wash denim, raw silks, boucle wools and plaids made of recycled plastics.
