The goal set forth was to design a wedding gown for a non-traditional bride who desires distinct aesthetics and comfort for the special day through the use of fiber art techniques. A secondary goal for the designer was to reuse metal findings from the manufacture of jeans for the bridal market. To achieve the second goal surplus nickel backs of tack buttons for jeans were knit and crocheted into the gown.
