Belisama: Lakes, Rivers,Fire & Craft; a study in fabric
The Belisama collection was showcased at London and Paris fashion weeks again with Fashions Finest for London Off schedule showcase and with Oxford Fashion studio in Paris . The collection takes its’ inspiration from Celtic mythology and the mood and style of the Edwardian avant garde. As a weaver, Linda is deeply stirred by the sensual textures of Margaret Macdonald and the assertive symmetry of Charles Rennie Mackintosh. Her intention is to echo these powerful elements while creating something fresh and new. In doing so Linda draws on a palette of natural and bolder hues of crimsons, teals, emerald greens, Amethyst with pastel greens & blues and lilacs, gold and silver complimented with natural hues from the sea and rivers and pebbles and rocks, to weave these inspirations together.
