Supernova was inspired by the texture and colours of Thierry Mugler’s Chimera dress and the iridescent spiny fins of the Hippocampus from the Percy Jackson movie The Sea of Monsters and some incredible N.A.S.A images taken by the Hubble telescope. Once all these elements were combined Supernova was brought to life. The large gems represent new stars being born and the dark shadows represent deep space.
