Event Title

Tiffany Reimagined

Presentation Type

Design Exhibit

Description

The purpose of this design was to create an engineered digital textile print inspired by Art Nouveau design and incorporating a 1950s silhouette, appliqué, and three-dimensional fabric flowers. The dress was inspired by 1950s styling, with an asymmetrical, lined bodice and a circle skirt digitally printed onto cotton sateen. The bodice was developed using flat pattern technique and the skirt was drafted. The pattern pieces were digitized into Optitex, imported into Adobe Illustrator, and opened in Adobe Photoshop for the design development. After developing the bodice design, I warped it around the darts so that it would continue seamlessly across the darts once they were sewn. The digital print for the skirt was developed using an image of a Louis Comfort Tiffany stained glass window (Tiffany 1981.159).
