This collection explores outrageously distorted silhouettes inspired by elements of botanics. This garment continues with the theme from my fashion illustration collection by taking inspiration from botanical forms from nature and abstracting the silhouette in order to create a fantasy. For form, I designed oversized sleeves with an absurd amount of fabric for a voluminous effect. I then manipulated the fabric by pleating the top of the sleeves and another section about halfway down. I also added a clear PVC shower curtain above the sleeves, to create a juxtaposing glossy texture to the matte fabric. This produced a slick effect that I think perfectly reflects the word “synthetic.”
