My second mentor project during my senior year at Otis College of Art & Design. Photos were taken from Otis’ 2017 juried fashion show.
Mentor: Poesia by Chris Chang, a couture designer from Shanghai
Design: My design consists of a kimono-influenced top, a tiered and asymmetrical wrap skirt, and a Chinese brocade obi belt with a tasseled contrast tie. The entire outfit is crafted from traditional indigo dyed and patterned fabrics from Nantong, China. The top features hand-made flowers, fringes, and colorful patchworking that plays off of the unique, nonuniform grid pattern of the fabric.
