AUDA JULY `17
The name Odette is the female version of Otto, from the Old High German words “otho” and “odo”, which are derived from the French word “auda” meaning “rich”.
Inspired by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake.
AUDA is a Collection that explores the story of Odette, a Princess turned into a Swan by an Evil Sorcerer’s Curse.
Odette is portrayed as Vulnerable, Gentle, Modest and Warm-Hearted by the use of Soft Pastels, Delicate Lace and Feminine Frills. We then begin to see Odette’s transformation, with Watercolour Mark inspired Digital Print, Edgy and Angular Silhouettes, and the Masculine Style Fringed Biker Jacket.
The Collections final transformation into a Magnificent Swan Princess is portrayed by the use of Contrasting Black and White Pleats.
