Abstract

Purple Lily Purpose: Inspiration for this garment came from street fashion and the Fall/Winter 2011 Dior Couture show. Dior had a very imaginative runway show that displayed pops of color and bold cuts with flower inspiration. I wanted to expand on that inspiration with the cut of the garment being an asymmetrical hem outerskirt with a fun color brought in through the garment. I also took the idea of a mini skirt underneath the outerskrit from street fashion where having a mini skirt under a longer skirt is fun, flirty and fashionable. Process: Researching cuts and colors was a large part of the process. I really wanted to throw back to the Dior inspiration with an on trend color for Fall 2012 as well as with the lace exhibiting the floral inspiration. I also researched color forecasts for Fall 2012 and found the perfect purple combination. Techniques: The piece was created through the draping technique. Draping is the smoothing, contouring and manipulation of fabric on a dress form to create a garment. The draping pieces were then transferred to pattern paper and cut to create the pattern pieces. Fabric was cut according to the pattern and sewn into a sample and eventually into the final garment. Materials: 100% cotton plain weave fabric, 100% nylon lace, 70% polyester 30% cotton lining
