Finally - finally - have the two designs I’ll be using for my presentation. I’m very happy with these two and I’m also really excited to get them going.
The concept was, although cliche, a mixing masculine and feminine. As well as mixing delicate materials - i.e. lace/silk - with more harsh materials - copper. It took a lot of work, and going outside my own boundaries and imagination, but I finally created something I think is original, accurately portrays who I am, and is visually appealing.
I’ve started on the copper wiring I’ll be using as a neck piece on the dress and shaping it into accent pieces for a top hat.
I’m very, very excited about these pieces! I’ll be posting pictures of both designs here soon, as well as documenting my progress as I sew them.
Let’s do this!
