This was the third year that I Love Leroy took part in the Design Indaba Expo. Our inspiration this year was drawn from 1920s circus. It was some what melancholic, some what playful and in a way a memory of things to come…
Colours were inky and soft , folded together like creases, bound by large fog watches and antique keys which hung clumsily on large silver chains around the necks of the models.
Inspiration is the most fequently asked question for me and often the most difficult to address. What is inspiring? How does one pinpoint something so broad?
There are so many thoughts and dreams and processes an artist lingers on when thinking up an exhibition, a designer a runway collection.Sometimes I think that it’s so hard to answer, because the answer is sometimes boring. Inspiration just IS.
And sometimes it’s a world that only you can imagine, where music that sailed you through all those idealistic moments in your life can bring that bouquet of innocence and magic blustering back to you.
