Seven Deadly Venoms

Here are some new photos taken by the amazing DAVEY DEATHWISH thankyouuuu!!

I just noticed in my revious post that I didnt take the time to mention the concept about this collection...
This is my graduating collection from semester 2 2010. It includes 7 outfits made up of 16 garments (17 if u cound both the jacket and detachable vest featured on the picture below).
The collection is titled "Seven Deadly Venoms"
The inspiration for this collection is a combination of Exploitation cinema (if you dont know what this is look it up!! some of the greatest B-grade movies you will ever see!), Tarantino, fung-fu and Anime!
Most of the collection is made to be convertible (I will be doing a look book in the near future to demonstrate this). Half of the collection is deconstructed tailoring and the other is leather!.... enjoy!

Who am I?

Welcome to my first blog!
My name is Rachael Perks
I am a Sydney based Fashion Design Student graduating in November 2010 from Whitehouse Institute!

I take inspirations from elements that may seem grotesque or conventionally unsightly and translate them into interesting, innovative and visually stimulating fashion pieces. My dream is to produce fashion that is deeply disturbing but breathtakingly beautiful…
My designs have always had a deep meaning to them, they are more than just clothes; they are characters. I am deeply involved with every concept, and translate it into a narrative; each piece of clothing is a part of the story. The outfits become animate objects, ready to play a role in the overall workings of the collection.

My Designs are directed at a niche market of creative and design individuals who want to get more personality out of their clothing.

My 'Play' label for the moment "Destroy Your Creator" (DYC) focuses on the creation of garments that deliver extra value to their owner. This Value being their ability to be transformed and customised to aid in the wearers self visual representation.
The brands philosophy is made up of 3 principles of individuality, the ability to be interchangeable and allowing the wearer to become their own fashion creator.
