'Bloody Valentine' was inspired by the film aspect of performance. Death is uncontrollable, and with so much death happening in 2020, the designers were inspired by the idea of death on their own terms. the team took inspiration from chick flicks and horror films such as Scream Queens, Jennifer's Body, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Charlie's Angels, Jawbreaker, and Carrie. Femininity is often seen as weak, stupid, and naive. the designers want their collection to show that women are multifaceted beings that can be sweet, cute, and sexy, but also smart, cunning, and dangerous at the same time. The women wearing the 'Bloody Valentine' collection are not damsels in distress- they cause the distress!
