Senior Collection-Scarves and Labels

In a Computer Printed Textile course I took this semester, I was able to design the top two patterns and have them printed on cream silk fabric. I wanted to use these fabrics to line a few of my pieces and also make scarves for my models to wear as fun accesories on the runway. The top piece is a royal blue, floral lace pattern and the botton is a crimson, zig-zag lobster pattern. I also designed tags with my initials to use as a final personal touch in all my pieces.

Senior Collection-Look 6

 This is my 6th and final look for my Senior Collection. I designed this evening, cocktail dress with a scoop neck, high back, tank style top, and flared skirt. I wanted to create my version of the famous Lobster Dress designed by Elsa Schiaparelli that my entire collection was inspired by. I designed and digitally printed the lobster pattern on cream, silk broadcloth. I wanted to use the princess style lines to incorporate the lobster fabric into my design. I paired the printed fabric with a crimson silk fabric. There is a back invisible zipper closure. The dress will be paired with a skinny royal blue belt on the runway.

Senior Collection-Look 5

 This is my 5th Look for my final collection. I designed this cocktail dress with a square neckline, pleat details at the front and back waist in the top and bottom, bell skirt, waist band with pleat detail in the front, side pockets, full cap sleeves, and invisible zipper closure in the back. It is made in a cream silk tapestry fabric with a light gray floral pattern, royal blue coating fabric, and floral blue printed silk fabric designed and printed by me.

Senior Collection-Look 4

 This is my 4th Look for my final senior collection. It consists of a long sleeve top with a scoop neck and v-back in a crimson sheer silk fabric with a zig-zag print, and a long skirt with princess panels, waistband, and side zipper closure in a cream crepe fabric with zig-zag panel print.
