FashiOn ShOw in CardiFf NatiOnal MuseuM

A prE-eDited ViEw PlatFfoRm 2012 Catwalk SHow

I had a chance to participate in Platfform 2012 Catwalk Show.
Few of 1st and 2nd years student's designs were selected to go on the catwalk
beside the designs of the 3rd years students work.
My model was also selected.

I used tree as my original source of inspiration. The tree which is exposed to the elements; strong wind twists  and bends its branches and distorts its original shape. From my research I developed my initial idea to the fine details of tree such as its growth rings and the creatures which inhabit it- woodlouse.
To create the concept of transparent fragility I used fabrics such as stiff millinery net to contrast with soft tulle.
