This is one of my garments for my collection called, “For the Pleasures of Searing Water.” The collection was for our student show this year and the theme was “The Movies.” I was inspired by the movie (And book), “Memoirs of a Geisha.” I wanted to take Geisha history and motifs and apply them with modern contemporary western fashion trends.
This dress was created using Julian Robert’s “Subtraction Cutting Method” (Watch http://blip.tv/julianand/professorial-lecture-the-subtraction-cutting-demo-bit-part-2-of-3-483655 if curious), which involves create shape by cutting and sewing together circles. This dress was inspired by the dance of geishas, the mystery, and the intrigue.
The dress is made from a polyester floral print lightweight knit with a champagne yoke, and inset black organza cap sleeves. A gold exposed zipper is featured on the back.
