Renowned for her unique prints and luxurious fabrications, Hilary MacMillan took a turn towards a moodier and darker tone for her Fall 2015 Season with a sombre interpretation of the Mexican tradition Day of The Dead, a holiday focused on gatherings of family and friends to pray and remember those who have passed and to help them in their spiritual journey in the afterlife. Needless to say, I loved all the black and white options and the few striking red numbers.
This season we wanted to convey the classic iconography of the Day of the Dead skull and rose you see portrayed in various artistic renderings of the holiday. We created a stunning dark and moody skull framed by two roses placed on top of a mosaic of roses. Another medium I am excited about this season is experimenting with laser cutting using the same skull icon through various outfits in this collection.”
