Un-Self Portrait

London based designer Gabriella Marina Gonzalez presents her amazing Autumn/Winter 2012 collection entitled Un-Self Portrait which was designed, hand made and shot by the designer while traveling abroad in the United States. Using material she pick up along the way, the collection includes vintage monkey fur reassembled from a 1920’s coat to form part of the showpiece dress. In the designer’s signature style, shredded silk appliqué was made from discontinued chiffon. Vinyl from a 1950’s table cover manufacturer’s dead stock was used to create metal like tubes and a new take on the GMG harness. Silk rope from home decor was used to create luxury straps on high gloss wooden platform shoes.
