Description

Travel to France and a study and perusal of the French gardens blended with ethereal reflections inspired the creation of this statement piece, Ethereal Effervescence. The design challenge was to create a botanically inspired gown drawing inspiration from floral gardens and the array of texture and volume in various floral species. Secondarily, the designer sought to recreate floral appliques that represented elements of the flowers studied for inspiration. The story began through a photographic essay of Flower gardens, flower boxes and floral reproductions from abroad and domestic sites. Research was done on flower making at all levels from craft to finely crafted elegant flowers. Several styles from Amy Barickman (2012) were used to give direction to the flower-making process. This data gathering and photographic story was used to begin the design process.
