Tell Us About Your Design
Black Longsleeve Cotton dress with cutout sides and high neck. 95% Cotton Jersey, 5% Lycra for resiliency. Recycled copper grommets backed with organza for strength and durability. Waterfalling Burnout Holes created as pattern in between grommets.
Who or What Were Your Biggest Inspirations During This Process?
I’m always in love and obsessed with stories of dark tragedies and much of the stories or inspirations I take in are of surrealistic motifs. I like to create garments where there is a fantasy and where you can have your imagination stirred of where that woman is going. She looks cool, artistic, collected, beautiful and interesting. You’d want to get to know her and what she’s about. I like to display my emphasis on craftiness and unique detailing.
Some fantasies are of Luxury, quality, and travel. A realm created for the wandering traveler, satisfying the wanderlust of industrial discovery: A gypsy-jetset in a gaslight affair, invoking her sentiments and fantasy of industrial idealization.
It is an amalgamation of Victorian aesthetics along with the idea of transition and advancement of travel: the juxtaposition of softness in texture and the architectural construction of garments.
Which Retailer(s) Would You Most Like to Sell Your Design?
PopKiller, Bluefly.com. Refinery 29, Scoop, Blue & Cream, Barneys, Bergdorfs, Harrods, Saks Fifth Avenue.
Judges’ Rating: 5/5
Judges’ Comments: “I totally LOVE this dress. It is sexy hot without being overtly slutty or oversexed. I love the grommets. They give the dress a gritty, edgy feel that is awesome. My one criticism is that I do not think you need side cutouts on this design. I takes away from the bottom of the skirt. I would buy this in a hot minute!” – Cynthia Smoot
