Inspired by antiquity and animal spirits, Amelia came to me with a vision of antlers. She wanted to become a forest creature, with feathers and vines and roots and dirt. We collaborated through piles of distressed clothing, string and stray antlers to bring her to life. The original concept was of a more rough and primal nature, a muddy doe. Instead what evolved that afternoon was this clean lovely deer bride, pure and devout. Next time, we promise, more dirt and leaves and feathers too.
