Abstract [en]

This project explores the features of a dress through two-dimensional imagery. It uses trompe l’oeil techniques to investigate and highlight the qualities of the garment. This proposes new ways to use trompe l’oeil designs and new ways to draw inspiration from an existing garment.

The dress has been studied visually; through looking at it, tracing its shape and through drawing and painting it. The shape of the dress has been studied and developed through pattern construction.

The design elements found in the dress have been expressed and enhanced into new designs. Embellishments and prints are used, to create a refined expression. The project has resulted in a seven outfit collection, where each outfit expresses one or two design element(s) from the inspirational dress.

The collection shows a way to use decorative techniques to express findings in an artistic garment investigation. It also shows a way to draw inspiration from an existing garment to create an independent new design.
