Be on the lookout for the upcoming Australian fashion show of designer Elliot Ward-Fear! I had the great pleasure of collaborating with him on some pieces for his upcoming show and couldn't be happier with the results. I made some super sexy stockings as you can see with cut outs, zippers, clips, trim and other various techniques to create texture on them.
The above images are some of them from the line's lookbook shot by amazing photographer Thom Kerr. I found an article on Frockwriter about the collection and thought I'd share a few excerpts with you from it: "Inspired by ancient Chinese warriors, medieval battle armour and 1970s sci-fi heroines, the collection showcases Ward-Fear’s meticulous attention to detail and love of craftsmanship.
It includes colourblocked corsetry, meticulously-constructed mini shift dresses and separates - whose geometric slashes of midnight blue and orange double knit ponte, gold lamé and moleskin are very much in step with fashion's current Art Deco mood. Alongside some cute high-waisted bellbottom trousers in a lush camel wool/cashmere blend and a fabulous "Ziggy Stardust" coat. Fashioned from wool and gold lamé zig-zag panelling, the latter can be worn as a dress (above) or as a coat – as seen on rising Australian music star Kimbra at this week’s Rolling Stone Awards.
Nude Latex stockings add a frisson of fetish. They were done in collaboration with US Latex artist Abigail Greydanus, whose regular clientele includes Lady Gaga, Katie Perry, and Rihanna. All obviously high profile entertainment figures with insatiable appetites for spectacular stage and video styling and in whom, frockwriter imagines, Ward-Fear hopes to some day find some kindred spirits"

I'll be sure to post more from the actual runway show as soon as it debuts!
