Nicole Daigle is a fashion and costume designer from
When looking for inspiration, I’ve always been drawn to historical architecture, costume, and culture. My recent work has been an exploration of the differing silhouettes of the Victorian era, and inspired by the language of flowers. In the 19th century, flowers were used as a method of communication; conversations could be had by sending bouquets, single flowers, or even leaves back and forth between two parties. These gowns are named after the meaning for the Austrian rose, “thou art all that is lovely”, and the moss rose, “confessions of love”.
