Abstract

The purpose of the current design was to use recycled materials to make a scene, sunrise and red clouds over a rainbow patch, in a sustainable dress. Principles of color and design were applied. Fabric rolls were made by rolling a piece of dark color fleece scrap and a piece of light color recycled felt together. From the dress' right to left side, the fabric rolls were arranged from cool colors (green and blue) to warm colors (red and orange). From the dress bottom to top, the fabric rolls were arranged from dark color (black, deep rose) to light color (light yellow and white). These arrangements created a visually interesting rainbow pattern. The emphasis point was the sunrise over the layers of clouds, which stands out by contrasting with the dark blue gown and catches the viewer's attention. This design contributed to what is known in sustainable fashion: make throwaways back into art. Rather than using a digital printing method, this design contributed to the apparel design field by showing an original way to use fabric straps to make a scene in a sustainable design.
