Avant Garde Fashion Inspiration

One of my goals this year has been to do a few costume upgrades on all of my signature acts. I’ve been searching for inspiration in mostly the avant garde genre with special detail to Alexander McQueen and Bob Mackie. I’ve especially been attention to draping, lines, and fabric patterns and found that simplicity and drama make for a phenomenal work of art. With the LA Fashion district so close, it’s both a blessing, and a financial curse when it comes to creating the costumes of my dreams. 😉 I can’t wait to share with everyone my new costumes, but for the moment, take a look as some of my favorite inspiring pieces. The details are exquisite.
