Description

This is one of the looks I used in my student collection, “A Modern Medieval Fairytale.” My inspiration for the collection was posed by the question, “What would medieval fairies wear today?” The theme for the show this year was “Time” and designers were asked to re-interpret time periods.

The print for this dress is original to myself. I created a unicorn print using kaledo software which was composed of unicorn motifs in the collection colors (Eggplant, Royal Blue, Golden Yellow, Neutrals) set upon a faded lace background. I researched and found a lot of color blocking so I thought I would do a print block to modernize it. I thought unicorns would be unexpected and fun.

The print was done on my school’s fabric printer on cotton sateen fabric while the black fabric is a similar weight crepe back satin. Horsehair braid was added to the hem to hem equalize it. The dress was draped to have a loose fit.
