This is Tilly Jones's 'Princess Pirlipat' from The Nutcracker by E.T.A. Hoffmann, from her graduate collection for performance costume at ECA. A coat made of a patchwork of faux fur in pinks and reds, embellished with applique lucky cat emblems with beautiful decorated and beaded, padded heart buttons.
"My concept incorporates influences from the 1950s, commercialization and Japan. The colour scheme is vivacious in order to convey opulence. Textiles utilise plastic, fur and embellishment aiming to present a comedic visual response." Tilly Jones
