I recently came across the work of Dean Quinn, some of you may have seen these beautifully crafted pieces already on Queen Michelle's blog, but they are so inspiring I had to post them myself. As a designer, formal wear (shirts especially) is a bit of a difficult area for me. I'm very strong on dresses, but when it comes to designing cutting-edge work wear I can struggle. Quinn's monochromatic work with bugle beads and tailoring is exceptional, adding a linear quality to the garment...almost like a futuristic Chanel...and oh-so inspiring. He is a graduate of Central Saint Martins, and claims influences from 80s sci-fi film, Bladerunner.
