The dress and cape are two of the first pieces in my Final Major Project collection in which I designed and made. Dress and cape are inspired by 1920's Art Deco era, 17th and 19th century jewellery as well as Haute Couture Embroidery. The cape is of silk organza dyed in tea with feather and bead fringe. The dress is of hand embroidery with silk organza ruffle fringe overlayering each tier of feather trim and bead fringe. The photoshoot was taken by photographer Deimante Meilune in an abandon industrial estate which was perfect because the theme and mood I wanted to create is about ''In Its Imperfect Setting.''
