PICTURE: #3 IN TEN ACTS
SPECIAL GUEST INTERVIEW:
FLORA COLLINS TALKS ABOUT HER 1ST OUTFIT
What items did you use to compose this particular outfit?
I used a vintage Stephen Jones hat and an Alice + Olivia dress.
How did you arrive at the decision to compose such an outfit?
I’ve had the dress for a while, but it’s only really appropriate in the winter. I tried to make it a more autumn outfit by going barelegged. I also liked the contrast between the purple and green.
Did you compose this outfit spontaneously or was it planned ahead of time?
I composed it pretty spontaneously. The hat was definitely unplanned.
In a scale of 10, how pleased are you with this composition/outfit?
What roles do color, the fit, and integrity of fabric play in this particular outfit?
The green and purple are big contrasts. The fit of the dress also plays a key role—it’s sexy and sparkly. The heavy purple hat almost adds an archaic touch, stopping the tiny dress from being too revealing.
How soon would you repeat/wear this same outfit again?
I would wear the dress again this winter, but perhaps without the hat.
There is perhaps a spiritual, emotional, intellectual or psychological aspect to what/how we dress. What is your personal experience in relation to this outfit?
I’ve worn this dress on many occasions with and without bare legs. I always have to be in a confident mood when I wear it, as it is a form fitting party outfit.
