Abstract

Paradise, bright colors, dramatic details, and elegant shapes inspired the design of a sculptural, sophisticated evening gown. After researching and observing the work of designers such as Oscar de la Renta and Balenciaga, their designs inspired me to drape a fluid, yet sculptural work with aflair toward the dramatic, and lines that detailed and accentuated the hips. The goal was to great a flattering, yet statuesque evening gown embodying structure and fluidity in harmony. Both the color and the fabric choices for the dress were influenced by Balenciaga. The classic combination of designer fabrics inspired the search for intricate, yet firm, fabrics that would maintain the shape of a sculptural dress yet be exquisite and rich looking.
