Image Statement: I wanted to create a garment appropriate for a personality as big and bold as Freddie Mercury. Primary colors of black and gold were inspired by the band’s 50th anniversary. Two beaded motifs suggest floral bouquets; the reverse is festooned with my take on the logo that Freddie Mercury designed.
