Razzmatazz

‘Razzmatazz’ is the title for a collection of opulent fabrics, woven in silk and other luxury fibres, for high fashion. Inspiration comes from life under the ocean, with the brilliantly coloured fish and coral reefs reflected in the rich colours, pattern and texture of the fabrics. Couture fashion has been my own inspiration to create this dramatic collection.
