A jacket quilted out of napkins that were embroidered by my great grandmother
Constructed out of satin using draping technique.
Satin scraps turned into a bias cut skirt.
This custom dress is constructed out of 5 different materials, sourced from different places, each with their own histories. While constructing this dress each material had a unique need that was considered through an intuitive and responsive process.
This dress was not constructed with a pattern or final vision in mind, but rather the materials and body for whom it was made guided the design. The process of making this commencement dress was a sequence of negotiations and an open dialogue between the maker and materials involved.
A pattern designed for the everyday. Every time this suit is constructed the chosen materials are responded to and adjustments are made to the block pattern. Throughout the years this has resulted in a range of modified versions each uniquely considered.
