For the Print Project, I was assigned to this blue print designed by the RISD textile student Sejeong Hwang and was asked to design a look based on the print. I came up with this voluminous sleeve jacket design with the basic dress underneath after many drapping and drafting experimentations. My design was inspired by the wave pattern in the print, which reminds me of both the ocean foam and the peacock tail. I wanted to create an elegant yet dramatic look with lots of movements. The final design echoes back to the curvy movement in the print. I chose an oriental brick red for the supplementary color. I also dyed the fabric in order to achieve the ideal color on the silk and cotton charmeuse.
