I as mentioned in some of my previous posts, I was working on a summer project for my fashion course.
The assignment was to come with a personal design philosophy as well as designing/creating an actual product. Coming up with solutions for creating a product with environmental awareness, is how I would like to continue my methods of creating a fashion product. To reflect my philosophy, I decided to explore the concept of up-cycle fashion.
Here are the following steps on how I created my product:
1. I used two white t-shirt, turned one upside down, and turned it into a dress.
2. For a more flattering fitting of the garment, I decided to elasticated the waist.
3. Finally, I decided to create a belt, by using sleeves of a plaid men’s shirt.
