Description

My A level project was designed for the company From Somewhere, the brief being a convertible outfit that can function as both a cocktail dress and swimwear. My original model ducked out at the last moment so a friend of mine agreed to wear it for the photos in my horrible garden, so whilst it looks ok you can see it is a bit big for her.

    I have to say working with the colours was one of the hardest parts, as i was given mostly scraps of fabric, the red being the fabric i had the least of so it was a matter of extreme planning to organise the colours like that. So i’m glad you like the way they are done :)
