Glacial Reprise

Cornell Fashion Collective 2017

March 11th, 2017


Inspired by melting ice caps and the fragile state of our environment, Glacial Reprise is a collection that highlights the effects of Global Warming. Through an exploration of structure and color we hope to mirror the effects of melting ice and flowing water as to inspire reflection and introspection




Two individual pieces were created for the Second Level collection theme. The pieces are original designs that were hand patterned, laser cut, sewn and constructed into garments. Silk chiffon and silk gauze were hand-dyed using an "ice dye" technique to physically incorporate the thematic element into the garments. 

Key Components: silk chiffon, silk gauze, powernet mesh, appliques and hand beading
