The collection is inspired by the strong women who have held the crown over the past centuries to present day. From the plight of Elizabeth Woodville (known as the White Queen) to Elizabeth I, Victoria and Elizabeth II. So, the collection looks to various centuries for inspiration as well. The Spanish word ‘Vivificar’ means a renewing which also signifies my comeback. For the colours of this collection, I looked to the jewels in the Imperial state crown from royal blue (sapphire), regal purple, ruby red and emerald green, with flowing satins, voiles, laces and embellishments.
