Fashion Design to Runway

Fashion Design, Textile Design

Looking to a mix of inspiration for this autumn winter garment, combining eighties fashion style‚Äôs with a feminine dance theme and Dutch fashion art for the runway look. 

The design is a one piece dress, constructed to look like a separate top and skirt. The top half of the bodice has a shawl button up collar, dolman sleeve and a waistband that flows to a tulip flower skirt constructed from eight petal panels. Each petal panel in the skirt overlaps to create the tulip flower silhouette. The dress is made from pure wool crepe in two colour-ways and the skirt petals are lined with acetate.   

Runway looks are extravagant, often bright and over the top, whilst ready-to-wear offers a daily refined style and look.
