This is my final project from my foundation degree. The title was “Destruction, Distortion and Deformation”. The project is more ‘Fine Art Fashion’ than wearable items but they can all be worn (for photography purposes) but a little bit more will be on show that wanted ;)
The design is original from a drawing of a broken mirror and shows the distortion and deformation through processes of design (from drawing to garment). The design is hand drawn on the fabric and repeated 4 times making the back top and bottom and front top and bottom. The top half is cut and stitched together to form a shape for the bodice with the centre machine embroidered. The bottom half is cut along the design and then spread out onto a skirt.
When on the body, it forms an apron/pinafore look. and is much more shaped than shown here with the waist and body to support it
Cotton. LOTS of black thread
Pattern of the Week
The oversized shape has a cool bell shaped silhouette with a wide body and fitted sleeves
