Gallery 2022 – Emily



This look is inspired by my love for flowers and nature. The pieces mimic the layering of petals. The ombré is carefully placed to accentuate the body. I wanted the vibrant colors to resemble a blue larkspur as well as emanate a futuristic impression. I explored different options of non-traditional fabric dyes in an effort to bring more awareness to water use in the fashion industry. In future projects, I will continue to use dyes that are noninvasive to our environment.
