Charl de Jouy- Toile within Fashion

I have followed the works of controversial fashion designer Charlie le Mindu for many years, I was introduced to his work, whilst researching a dress made fully of hair worn by Lady Gaga circa 2010, but it is his 2012 Autumn/ Winter collection that had be thinking deeply. It was great to see how Toile de Jouy can be fashioned as the fabric is incredibility old fashioned so it may become a challenge making it look youthful as I do intend to fashion the textile (toile de jouy)

I spent sometime simply researching ‘Toile de Jouy in Fashion’ and have a varied amount of fashion collections that have featured Toile de jouy many like Charlie le Mindu and Pam Hogg have opted for traditional Pastoral prints, where I aim going to go that step further and create my very own pattern repeat.
