Abstract

The design was inspired by a silhouette from an image of a French woman in the 18th century. Her dress was very feminine with soft lines, pastel colors, and unique flower ornamentation. The purpose of the design was to fuse the romantic fashion style of 18th century France with contemporary styles. It also achieves sustainability by creating multiple looks and using natural fabric. The dress can be worn in two ways. The first look is the decorated dress seen in the image on the left. By detaching the flower ornamentation on the neck and around the hip the second look, seen below, transforms the design to be modern and minimal.
