Description

This dress was a sustainable design challenge using geometric shapes to achieve a zero waste garment design. All garment “pattern” pieces originated as either squares or rectangles and were draped on the dressform to develop the final design. My aesthetic goals for this design combine cultural and environmental sustainability by exploring the use of shibori in an apparel application, combined with the use of natural dye (indigo) to color the silk.
