Titled “CrazySexyNautiCool” the Sophia Webster Spring 2016 presentation offers oceanic prints, beach sunsets and optical iridescence.  Here is what the artists has to say about the concept.

TFP:  What was the inspiration for the collection?

Sophia Webster:  For years I have been dreaming about presenting a collection in a fantasy mermaid Laudnerette, where mermaids spend a few precious hours on land to wash their tails and wear their favorite shoes.  I loved taking my imagination on a journey from Land to sea, and then from the ocean bed to a mermaid universe.  It gave me the opportunity to combine my favorite colors with the wonderful materials and prints I have created.

TFP:  How did you take your dream from concept to reality?

Sophia Webster:  Shona Heath had the perfect vision to realize this world and I always wanted Katy B’s Sweet and soulful vocals layered onto the experience.  Leith Clark has styled the mermaids with romantic sparkling swimming caps and luxurious vintage inspired bathing suits.
