I have become so inspired by Dolce and Gabbana's A/W 2014 collection that I have incorporated felt stitched appliqué animals onto my bunny outfits. The Dolce and Gabbana collection is a fantasy/fairytale Sicilian secret garden, full of magic.

The collections colours are the colours I want to use in my A/W bunny clothes. With felt appliquéd animals on their overalls or sweaters and knitted snoods the bunnies have a new look. I want to make knitted or crochet cardigans with hoods next!
The mood board for the collection is full of images that shout lavish fairytale, loaded with tapestries, paintings and lace. The paintings show women wearing conical hats known as 'Hennin' which were popular with nobility in 1430. Other images show enchanted forests, with dark florals and crossed keys.
