Event

Description

Lady of the Lake is an artistic appreciation for the beauty of Lake Michigan and Hamlin lake, which is located near Ludington, Michigan. The design process began when artist Dick Bourgault of Ludington, Michigan, took photos around Hamlin lake while taking an early spring walk with his wife. These pictures were posted on social media and the author of this endeavor found them fascinating. After obtaining permission from the artist, the photos were used to create a two-piece womenswear ensemble. Hamlin lake is a man-made lake that was once used for holding logs during for a sawmill built by Charles Mears. Charles named the artificial lake after Hannibal Hamlin who was Abraham Lincoln's vice president choice. The silhouette was inspired by a classic Balenciaga dramatic A-line shape that emphasizes volume. The upper front and back bodice pieces were then digitized and uploaded to Lectra's Modaris software.
