Abstract

The purpose of this project was to make a gown that glorifies the colors and shapes of fall leaves. The plan was to exhibit replica leaves of fabric by sandwiching them between layers of satin and tulle. The top layer of tulle was necessary to inhibit the abrasion of the raw fabric edges and to create the composite fabric. Inspiration came from the leaves themselves that displayed so many interesting shapes and brilliant autumn colors.
