I can’t believe my journey of fashion school at @miamifashioninstitute is over! The two years that I spent at MFI were two of the best years of my life, I made so many friends and made so many garments, including this one!
This was one of my projects for my Fashion Design 2 class and the task was to create a gown inspired my fashion legend and icon Charles James and incorporate new technology. I chose to utilize laser cutting and had this rose overlay that I created and designed cut for me on peau de sois fabric.
I then used a fabric stiffener to make the fabric more manageable and draped and cut the pieces on to the dress and hand sewed the overlay to multiple places to keep it in place. The final design is very different from my original sketch, but I like this design way more!
Here are a few behind the scenes videos of how this dress was made.
