A dress from Spring/Summer 2008 "La Dame Bleue" shows the bird designs tht inspired McQueen. He has made a beautiful cape that resemble an extended set of wings. I could perhaps incorporate some of the feathers that I made into the final outcome.
Closeup of a Kingfishers wing feathers. It sadly lost its life after flying into a cottage window in mid december, and was brought round to me to take any photos before it was buried in their garden. Here you can see how the colours change with the light . It was photographed outside in morning light. Thanks to Olly for lending me his 90mm Tamron Macro lens.
SECONDARY RESEARCH: There is a simple meaning behind this simple logo, breaking away and finding freedom. This story is told through the 'm', the top is broken, above the broken part is shown as a bird flying away. Clever and simple design.
