From the Closet to the Street
This design submission is a street style look designed for consumers desiring sustainable and stylish street fashion. The dress emphasizes the design aspects of color, line, texture, asymmetric balance, and proportion. It is a three-piece ensemble created from remnant dark denim fabric from the school fashion closet and 100% silk fabrics naturally dyed with leftover cutch. The ensemble is comprised of a crop top made of 100% silk dupioni, a high-low tunic top of silk chiffon, and a midi-length, high-waisted denim skirt. Each piece can be coordinated with other garments, providing versatile options that reduce the need for additional dresses. The denim skirt can be worn with a t-shirt, jacket, or blouse, and the crop top and tunic can be matched with various bottoms. The goal behind this versatility is to enhance the garment’s emotional value, creating more satisfying and more environmentally friendly fashion.
