The theme of my project is opulence and maximalism infused with elements of jewellery. I have
been inspired heavily by the work of Versace, their aesthetic inspired the start of my research. From
this I began researching past decades, especially the 1980s and 1990s, from which the aesthetic,
music and icons at this time further fuelled my ideas and inspiration. I created opulent, maximalist
installations to draw from, then developed these into prints and scarf designs using print techniques
and fabrics that reflected my research. I aimed to create timeless designs that will not date into
scarf designs that have multiple style options.
