Todays inspiration came from Alexander McQueens recent short film "She Builds Domes In Air" by artist Catherine Sullivan. The video was shot in Temperate House in Kew Gardens, the largest surviving Victorian glasshouse in the world. The natural and man-made relationship of the botanical gardens was key in Catherine Sullivans vision for the film fitting the brief of “ a natural environment that was emphatically structured”.
I've also been lusting after this Zara dress for a while, but it's defiantly one of those dresses that you have to see on for yourself no matter how good it looks on someone else. Zara's fast fashion policy really does bug me though , I haven't seen it in a store near me in my size to try on and I feel there's no time to decide wether or not I like the dress enough to order it because before i know it, it's sold out everywhere and the only xs is going for twice the price on eBay. (Although it does currently say 'back soon' on the website? what's going on Zara? I've never seen this before, is this the end of their infamous 'going, going, gone forever' policy?)
