CARMEN'S HERITAGE 

The Song: Your garment is inspired by music. "Gypsy" by Fleetwood Mac is a song about freedom, love and fear, being true to yourself and grabbing opportunities with both hands before it's gone.

Artwork Name: "Carmen" - After the dramatic opera of the same name. Set in southern Spain it tells the story of the downfall of Don José, a soldier who is seduced by the wiles of a fiery gypsy

The Design: Designed specifically for this unique piece, the true focal point of Carmen is the dramatic sleeves. Composed of feather light, semi transparent ruffles, the Spanish style flamboyance is a visual feast to the onlooker, while comfortable to wear. 

Flashing bold red, sumptuously rich satin lining sits inside the bodice and upright collar, which stands proudly like Carmen herself.

The gem encrusted, flowery diamante shoulder applique complements the black and red theme, creating a spectacularly stark contrast of colours in true Spanish style. The red flowers were selected for this creation as they symbolise the carnation, which in Spain is associated with a symbol of affection between lovers.
