The Darnell Collection's new vision in 2015: "Vintage Meets Cutting Edge"

STOP PRESS!

How I use my collection has moved such a long way from my original concept of keeping it for storytelling alone. Eleven years on, I am now fascinated by the potential of taking it, a fashion collection showcasing 250 years of dress, and making it truly cutting edge in the 21st century. 

This is how an authentic 1960s cotton and silk organdie party dress becomes a computer generated dress for a 3-D avatar. The process was laborious, but the result was astounding. 

Watch this space for some exciting initiatives to evolve this year!
