Refashioning an old garment
For the assignment, I chose to explore reuse through refashioning a garment I no longer wear. My aim was to refashion the garment into a new design that I find visually appealing and would wear more often since the original garment was uncomfortable and the design did not appeal to me. Thus, I created this summer garment that can be worn in different ways (with or without choker and gloves). To add new features to the garment, I used textile remnants (black chiffon and net fabric) that I had available, so nothing new was sought for this assignment. With the old garment, I was able to create not only the upper-body piece, but also the gloves that can be worn as a decorative element. For my video, I decided to include movements like running and twirling to show how the garment acts on the body when in motion and to give a 360 degrees view of the garment.
