Description

This dress was created for one of my final two collections in graduate school, “Phoenix Rising.” The dress was created using subtraction cutting for minimal waste. The textile was bleached several times to achieve a layered appearance. The textile was then shredded and deconstructed with a power Dremel hand tool. The design goal was to create a collection of garments that referenced previous work by myself, but in a new way. The collection was to burn away my previous designs to make way for a new chapter upon graduating from grad school.

Red lace was deconstructed and appliqued on to represent new life. A silver metal stud was put in the middle of each flower to add shine and dimension.

This is the second look and shows an extensive amount of bleaching. Each look would feature less and less denim as it is burned away.
