Through a collaboration between Fashion at Brown and Fusion Dance Company, I was able to work on my first cohesive apparel design. This design was featured in a live performance event where Fusion Dance Company wore designs made by Fashion at Brown's design team in November of 2021. Working in a group with more experienced designers, this design gave me an introduction into the apparel creation process from concept to clothing. Following the live performance, all of our items were auctioned off to attendees of the show.
This design was inspired by exploring the intersection between Y2K fashion, creative lace designs, and a darker color scheme. Finding creative ways to play with black and dark fabric through using buttons to pin the three pieces of the angular outer top together and incorporating lace elements on the outer sleeves and pants allowed for me to explore my passion in making unique apparel.
