Sneak Preview of Marina Makaron Moscow SS'11: Charlie

Here is the second of three sneak previews of Marina Makaron Moscow's Spring/Summer 2011. When I asked Marina about her inspiration for Charlie she had this to say: "some people obsess over Elvis, others over Marilyn, I just felt- Charlie! An abstract black and white Charlie. I think I portrayed it about right ;)" Marina sees designing as not only a creative process but also fun that has no guidelines except synergy of colour and shape for the eye. "I just see particular shapes and colours in my mind, perhaps an idea I liked in a glossy magazine or something I saw someone wear. So I start pulling it through my filter of perception onto the screen, playing around with it until it's 'just right'. Sometimes while trying to depict one thing I end up with something completely different (usually the case) but I always have to feel 'this is it'."
