“I always gravitate toward some sort of natural elements in my work,” said Daniel Vosovic of his spring 2011 collection, which walked yesterday on a runway made of dirt. The Project Runway alum started experimenting with digital printing last season, so what looks like an abstract print is actually a close-up photo of wolf fur, deer fur, burnt ash, and wood. But flora and fauna weren’t the only inspirations; Vosovic also looked to Elizabeth Taylor in Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? “I loved the fact that she could go through a sex romp, hours and hours of drinking, and still look glamorous,” he mused. “You can see that my show’s hair and makeup at one time, maybe ten hours ago, was a completely polished look, but my woman would never wear a polished chignon.”
