Description

For my second project in my ND1 (national diploma year 1) in fashion and textiles, i was given the brief of recycling a shirt to make a garment, continuing with the theme from my first project (urban nomad paper dress: http://www.burdastyle.com/projects/urban-nomad-paper-dress)

I had to carry out research in to a nomadic group of people, for which i chose the bedouins who live in north africa, looking at the clothes and prints that they were as well as there jewelry and tattoos. to create the prints to go onto my garment.

over all i got a distinction for this project. :)
