Sketches for the Black Magic Collection. I loved using this black star tulle and the way it looked over colours and just in black and white. 
It was perfect for a version of our 'Wallis' sheer dress coat, as a looser more modern style dress with a tie waist and a skirt and top. 

On sheer tops I always hat the need for a bra or obvious line to cover the breasts and or nipples. Bandeau tops can be a hard line and I loved one of Sasha Velours sheer tops on Drag Race. It was a simple sheer top with plain black nipple covers. 

With the stars I wanted bold coverage in the same way with the stars clustered over the nipples . 

The full skirt has a shorter midnight blue lining which works so well with the black tulle or a dusky night sky. 


Each piece is a one of a kind and available to buy ready to wear in the studio shop or online. For the styling I made a small black star face veil for added drama. I really love face veils with red lipstick.
