Alexandra Heath – Ethereal Elegance
Name: Alexandra Heath
From: Belfast, Northern Ireland
My Garment: A long grey printed silk jacket, with a river print top and beige draped silk trousers. The grey peeling print used on my jacket symbolises how you reveal layers of yourself when in love, you are free to be yourself with that person.
What Style Means To Me:
Style is the ultimate expression of who you are. It is everyone’s way of showing the world what you are passionate about, what makes you ‘YOU.’ It is not only in the way you dress or how you accessorise an outfit; it is in the way you hold yourself – with confidence, grace and elegance. Being true to your personal style can inspire others as you are expressing who you are while looking and feeling great. This kind of feeling can be shared the world over. My dream is to create beautiful fashion that transports and captures the world through evocative journey based design. To help others find and embrace their unique style.
My Concept: The inspiration behind my design was a personal experience of first love – the vast range of emotions you go through is incredible and inspired my designs. My ‘Ethereal Elegance’ concept encapsulates a journey of first love. It explores a contemplation of this experience, through the layering of emotion embodied by bold prints on delicate silks. As structural elements begin to fall away the girl is revealed, as we identify our own nostalgia, that of falling in love for the first time.
