Tiffany (Wenting) Zheng
The inspiration for this dress is escapism. Showing a feeling of loss, despair, and trying to break free by imagining it to be something beautiful. A feeling like an illusion luring you into its trap.
The outer layer of the dress is made with peachy nude and blush tulle, and the inner layer is of a blush heavy silk.
The two colors of tulle together give the dress a beautiful and ethereal look.
Strapless gown, ruched bodice in two shades of tulle, with cascading circular ruffles.
15 circles of fabric are pinned at the top of the skirt and flow freely down. Someone is being imprisoned, yet they are so close to breaking free.
The light color of this dress represents a fantasy and a distraction from reality, which contrasts how it is constructed to be tight and fitting.
