She also said: “I’ve always been obsessed with his eyewear, and when I got to Dior and saw all the materials I could play with, it all just came together”.
About the design process she said: “The process was pretty seamless. I spent a day at Dior with their eyewear design team. I started by looking through all the archives to see what they’ve done in the past, then got acquainted with all the new materials. I literally sat there and drew and drew until I was happy with the design, and the team illustrated it for me right then and there. We picked materials and colors that same day, and after that it was a matter of weeks before I saw the first prototype”.
It sounds like she had a lot of designing this collection. We look forward to seeing more pictures of it and other future collaborations from the Bajan beauty.
