Description

The goal of Tiered Chromium was to create a modern two-piece garment inspired by geometric and linear shapes. Three fabric manipulation techniques such as: caning, weaving, and applique were used to create geometric shapes and lines. Caning was used to make hexagonal shapes and was repeated in the applique design along with other geometric shapes. The weaving on the bodice's back and sleeves mimics the woven lines used to create the cane. Metallic colors of white, black, silver, and rose gold were used throughout the garment to add cohesiveness and sleekness to the design. Contrasting colors are used to differentiate the design elements from the smooth black base fabric of the garment.
