The following post is combined work of facts and fiction.
My sincere thanks to my ITP mentor, my group mates and supermodel Gisele Bundchen.
After working on bodice and skirts in semester 3, we moved on to making dresses, torso and trousers in semester four. At the end of the semester, as a part of Integrated Term Project we make a final garment incorporating all the techniques we learnt throughout the semester. I decided to make a contemporary dress inspired from Japanese geisha.
While the word ‘Japanese geisha’ reminds us of the tradition and culture in Japan, I aimed at designing a dress which is contemporary and yet borrows elements from geisha.
