What made you fall in love with fashion?

I have always loved fashion. As far as I can remember, I have always been picturing clothes and outfits in my head. I remember seeing pictures from the Met Gala in magazines when I was younger and finding them so captivating.

Another event that confirmed my love for fashion was writing my dissertation, which focused on the world of fashion and Surrealism. I looked closely at the link between designer Schiaparelli and Surrealism during the early 20th century.

Where do you find inspiration?

If I am ever struggling with a creative block, I always turn to Tagwalk—a tip I learnt from assisting Aimee Croysdill.

I also turn to my Pinterest boards for inspiration. I am forever adding to them and they never let me down.

We asked Prue to share the creative concept that she hopes to one day bring to life...

Surrealist dream

I'd love to stage a shoot that acts as a nod to my studies of the Surrealist art movement. The shoot would celebrate shape, beauty, and a dreamlike world.

The styling would include simple dresses and suits. The looks will be accessorised and styled with large hats, bows, socks, gloves and feathers.

I'd shoot against a backdrop of turquoise waters and white sand to bring out the strange beauty and magic of Surrealism, whilst allowing for sleek silhouette contrasting shots.

In a dream world, it would only feel right to work with Schiaparelli. Additionally, I would love to work with YSL, Versace, Valentino, 16 Arlington and Miscreants London—they are all amazing.

It would be incredible to see this come to life!
