Event Title

Glaciers

Presentation Type

Design Exhibit

Description

Alaskan glaciers floating down to the mid-mountain and iceberg floating on the sea inspired this project. The design purpose was to express the organic force of flowing glaciers with their layers of cracked ice. The blue background with its structural shape contrasts with the silver trimming to emphasize the huge, cold, and sharp concepts of glaciers. The layered organza pieces express the mystique of glacier shelves and the transparent effect of ice. The irregular tucks signify the cracks, while the irregular hemline symbolizes the sharp shapes. The descending stream of stones with a gradation effect accentuates the flow and floating. Tie-dyeing created the blue gradation. The silver edges were completed by interlocking technique. Ten pieces of the 12”×80” rectangular with bias grain were layered using a draping technique, creating the dress shape and symbolizing layers of ice. This dress is best suited for high-profile event such as The Academy Awards.
