Candace Turner Spring 2014 Cosmo de la Mode Fashion Show Clip

Here are a few looks from Spring 2014 capsule collection that was inspired by my painting study of the luscious and what I consider visually impactful blossoms of both the orchid and passion flower.

With the current season’s intensity of blues- especially those in the cobalt and marine variety, I strove to intertwine the classic pastel palette juxtapositioned with using different hues of blues for a more graphic quality.
My consistent dance between painting and creating apparel- which I consider each individual piece like a living, moving 3-D sculpture that can capture a mood, emotion, or an instant has made me simultaneously a better painter and a better designer because even though the two mediums are very different, they are one and the same in my body of work.
