These dresses easily pull double duty and make cute off-beat vintage style bridesmaid dresses. Can be made in either 100% cotton, cotton poplin or dupion silk, in bright statement colours but with a little secret – underneath the skirt is a super fun petticoat in a brightly coloured net.

Apocalypsis design project, using my inspirations of a future post apocalyptic world, modern architecture and body adornment, interpreted with some modern abstract prints in colours that can represent future camouflage, which will in turn be used for decorating sections of my designs.

A darker body of colour

design 1 page 2

The image I took from my research to experiment with darker colours, is a piece Harvey Nichols, commissioned Heatherwick studio to produce an installation to celebrate London Fashion Week 1997. I have fallen in love with the work this company produces, one of their more recent pieces being the Olympic Cauldron, for the London 2012 games, if you are unfamiliar with their work check it out it’s amazing.

So using an image of the piece called Autumn Intrusion to experiment with colours on the body, also including design specs of the garment, which can be altered to the wearers’ personal tastes.

Colour on the body

design 2 page 1 blue

Using an image from my research, this one taken from the art exhibition Beyond Infinity by Serge Salat and overlaying a fashion design to experiment with colours, also including design specs of the garment, to show where it can be changed from a “all-in-one” to button up sleeves, which gives the wearer the option to change how this outfit could look depending on their personal style.
