Gallery 2022 – Adelina Isakova



My thesis project was inspired by marble figure statues and their intricate details. I wanted to convey the sensual emotions seen in the embracing statues throughout each garment and create a feeling of intimacy and elegance with each ensemble. The drapery and wings on the statues in a lot of my reference images were the main inspiration for the pleating and overall design details in my garments.
