David Meister – Otis Mentor Project

My senior mentor project, a cocktail dress featuring fluttering cape sleeves, designed for David Meister.

As a sustainable fashion minor, part of the challenge for this design project was to use sustainable fabrics. This dress is made from organic cotton voile. I played with the transparency of the fabric by layering a bias strip treatment over, forming a plaid-like pattern on the body of the dress. These stripes are then sewn down with beads and crystals. Additionally, multiples types of feathers are attached to the dress, with crystals, along with a layered ostrich feather trim at the hem.
