Gallery 2022 – Krystal Parisi



My thesis is inspired by the loss of my grandma when I was younger, her name was Iris. After losing her I became very withdrawn, but over my time here at FIT, I have grown and pushed myself more than I ever thought was possible. While loss is hard, it forces growth, and over time something beautiful blooms. The bustier top shown is composed of Italian coated latex with dried and pressed flowers encased and stitched down to create a unique textile.
