This is a mini collection I completed in June for my fashion design class. The design was inspired by the Japanese kimono and cultured in texture and fabric to bring in my African heritage:)
I started out with different shapes…circles and rectangles, I draped these on my fitting doll and in time came up with the designs.
All designs copyright:)
The only store bought pattern was for the shorts…I will check for the burda reference.
Cotton, Ankara and leather for some of the belts.
Pattern of the Week
The oversized shape has a cool bell shaped silhouette with a wide body and fitted sleeves
