Sophie Engstrom – Inspired by Jellyfish
Name: Sophie Engstrom
From: Hornchurch, Essex
My Garment: A fitted dress inspired by jellyfish.
What Style Means To Me: I thrive when looking at fashion from around the world and feel opportunities to visit different places and participate in competitions such as the Liberty Fashion Design Competition inspire my style and help me learn new skills.
My Concept: My fitted dress was inspired by the shapes of jellyfish. I have also been inspired by visiting exhibitions such as the Club to Catwalk at the V&A, in particular fashion from the 1980s and how elements still are used in fashion today such as bleached jeans. I was really fascinated by Jean Paul Gaultier’s exhibition at the Barbican in September 2014, showing different concepts that can inspire my ideas.
