Silhouettes were kept clear and simple, though richly embellished by consistently flowy and lightweight textures, thereby creating an effortlessly chic and feminine look.
Several pieces feature hand embroidered parts, ruffles, and ribbons, which added to the light feeling of the pieces, despite not being diaphanous. Rose, red, nude, turquoise, and silver build the main colour palette. A pale rosé coloured midi dress, standing out as one of the centrepieces of the collection, contained a petticoat like ruffle underskirt, which was reminiscent of various bygone eras, coalescing regency era elements with roaring ‘20s and ‘50s elements. The former being referenced by its empire silhouette top, while the ‘20s are alluded to by the length and heavy pearl necklace, the underskirt on the other hand is reminiscent of ‘50s petticoats. Unique is a perfect fit for the modern chic and refined woman.
Elisha Quarman is a Contour Fashion graduate who studied at De Montfort University and only recently graduated in 2021. She has a keen interest in the intimates industry and specialises in lingerie. Her graduate collection was inspired by the Chinese culture seen within the V&A Museum. The designs were influenced by the etchings and surface textures of the ornaments and traditional Chinese dragon. Elisha experimented with fabrics such as leather through laser cutting, utilising the curved structures of the dragon and the texture of the dragon scales to create an etched engraved print on to leather. She explored creative shape and curved seams to inspire the design. Elisha presents a luxury lingerie collection of leather, silk and lace lingerie. She wanted to explore the leather lingerie market as she felt there was a gap within the market for luxury leather lingerie that isn’t necessarily fetish wear.
