I was asked to contribute to an awesome international collaboration in Cake Masters Magazine – Fashion Through the Ages.
Along with 9 other amazing cake artists from around the world, I was given a decade to interpret in cake. Sweet Tiers represents the 1990s!
The 1990’s were loud and sexy. My creation was inspired by Gianni Versace. Renowned for combining luxurious classicism with overt sexuality. He was responsible for the birth of the era of the supermodel and as a result his fashion became inextricably entwined with 90’s pop music, celebrity and excess.
Cleavage threatened to spill out of tight, bold gowns and embellished brassieres were worn on the outside. Solid colours, bold geometrics, animal print and intricate details were Versace’s trademarks. Created for the super rich, his impact was felt across all sections of society as adaptations of his designs found themselves woven into our jumpers, leggings and accessories.
This creation pays homage to his incredible talent that still inspires to this day.
