dc.description.abstract <p>This design is part of an 8-piece collection. The challenge of this collection was to combine the aspects of nature and technology, while also mixing different prints to create aesthetically-pleasing designs. Physical samples of flora and fauna were collected and microscopic images were taken. The images were then edited minimally in Photoshop and used to create digital textile prints. In some cases the images were repeated across the fabric, and in others the print was engineered to be the size needed for the pattern piece. The images for this design were taken from the leaves and bark of the aspen tree and the needles of both the blue spruce and lodgepole pine trees. The concept of biomimicry inspired the shapes and silhouette of this design. The silhouette of the dress was inspired by the triangular shape of the spruce and pine trees and the layers on the skirt represent the layers of needles of these trees.</p>
