Creative Statement

For my project, I was inspired by Stephane Rolland’s Spring 2013 couture collection. His dresses were very structural, eye catching, and unconventional. So, I decided to make garment that was architectural and not ideal for everyday wear.

I started by using white plastic bags to make a strapless top. Then, I covered it with magazine papers. I sewed the magazine papers together using running and fell stitches. Due to the fragileness of the magazine papers, I had to cover it with catalog papers that were thicker. I then, used catalog papers to fold into architectural shapes such as leaves and flowers. And then I sewed those shapes onto my garment by using running stitches.

My finished garment definitely has a lot of volume and structure.
