You can see on this article how a concept can be declined in mulitple design, how a creation is derived from another and get a different meaning according to the person that wears it.
I got this colourful shows lace from a charity shop where they didn't know what to do with, so I got them for a little donation. I cut to different lenght the lace and burent the edge, and stitched each string to a bright pink lycra base, from a tropical avant garde fringy dress that have an amazing floaty movement.

I found a couple of unicorn cuddly toys in Poundland and felt the texture and colours were perfect to create a pattern. Also I like the fact they were not a brand and quite generic so would not refer to any specific famous toy. Then, because I work generally with lot, the hunt for more unicorns cuddly tous begun and I had to go around several Poundland accross London to find about 20 copies.

Maryam Eilser, author or Voices of East London book, very generously organised an open studio day in Columbia road with Florent Bidois and Mei hui Lui,
The idea was to get our work discovered by a new clientele, inviting influential special guests like artists, gallery curator, PR managers…etc
So great to see gorgeous elegant women wearing my creations. They are very different than the extravagant festival people but it just works.
We decorated the traditional east London Victorian time building with its brick veneer with our designs, reconstituting an artist studio.
Mei hui and her team cooked some dumpling to die for.
Great food, great art and great company, what more to ask?
Seing the fresh enthousiasm of a whole new groupe of people gave me a new impulse to go back to my actual studio and make more, sometimes you just need a little boost.

It seems that our designs have the power to create this "colour walk vibe" in any context bringing joy

I find this dress turned out really well. I had this printed neoprenne type fabric with the classical figure of the king of heart in the traditional game of cards.
For a very "Alice in Wonderland Tim Burton style, I embelished the masculine king figure with sequins, ruffles rinhstones for a baroque vision with a twist of a drag king or a drag queen of heart.
I find the mirrored double face really interesting as the drag king is playing a double identity game, with a ambigious gender identity.
Like a Shakespearian character when a actor plays a feminine part (as it was forbidden for women to go on stage in the 15e century), but like for example when in the Tempest,
type where actor embody feminine character, who for example in Twelfth Night, Or What You Will Viola is disguised in Cesario , so where a man play the part of a woman disguised in a man carrying away the audience in the vertigo of gender identity.

I am always happy to collaborate with different artists and lend my costume to people who have helped me in the past. I feel my costumes are not made to sit in my closet but are design to have a life outside the studio, spreading joy and inspiration. So I didn't hesitated when Alice asked to borrow my white wire serpentin dress which fit perfectly with the brief creating a symbolic futirisitc foam in the bath.
