Elemental Extremities

Elemental Extremities was named for the focus on both small elements and extremities. This collection was my first experience with draping. This new technique inspired the entire collection. Each piece started with draping from an extremity, such as the hands, feet, etc. Each has an accent to add interest such as beads or twisted colored threads.

This garment in particular included the hands for extremities and the beads and panels for the textured elements. I wanted the garment to resemble and accent the human body. The nude was to accent the body as well as not to distract from the texture. I added interest in the asymmetric layers and beading. My target market is designer because of the practical element and all of the intricate beadwork. The dress is intended to be a piece of wearable art.
