It looks even better when its worn! Thanks to Simone Clarke who danced Carabosse and to Hilary Barber for the photo.
For my Ice Dreams collection I made a headdress for a fairy tale. The structure reflected the formation of ice crystals in hoar frost and the confection of unravelling monofilament and mother of peal irise yarn reminds me of snow flurries.

I realised that this was what clothes did for us too and I started to explore what was hidden underneath this cloak of frost. Would I find something dark and sinister beneath all the pristine white surface?
The thought of something hidden influenced my choice of colour palette and instead of using monochrome I looked for greys, purples and blues but I couldn't resist the lovely combination of red and green that I found in this frosted flower.
