Great collages! The 20s influence is really clear.

I wish I could decide whether Laura's stuff is derivative or not. I think her strongest pieces are that beige pleated dress in your first collage and her gray satin dress with all the beading and the mustard velvet belt. I don't think I've seen either of those devices before. But the rest of it just seems completely familiar, albeit exquisitely made. And why would she use so much black lace, when we've seen her using and wearing so much throughout the season?

Was the fourth dress down, next to the JoBa (get it? get it? HAW!) poster, from Malan's collection?
