As a designer I am often influenced by my surroundings and scenes I find when rambling through the country side. This outfit is inspired by the crashing rivers of a local canal lock. The frills of the dress and sheerness of the fabric reflect that of the water, giving texture and shape to the outfit. The blouse is created from and off white textured cotton. The pleated front and large cuffs give texture and form, whilst the frilled neck line reflects that of the dress.
