Typical choice as it may well be I've chosen Marie Antoinette to base my final collection on. I watched Sofia Coppola's adaption who used one of my favourite actresses, Kirsten Dunst, to star as the troubled Queen. I loved her modern take on the story and the colours and costumes were beautiful. I liked how the film setting was so decadent and the clothes were all candy-coloured, but behind this dream-like state the monarchy was in ruin. Not to mention huge debt.
I think there has been many people who have used Marie Antoinette as inspiration but i want to make it my own. This might be hard but i like a challenge. :)
