Senior Collection

My final collection is inspired by the Nereids, daughters of the sea in Greek mythology. I imagined one of them coming to the surface and falling in love with human streetwear. Denim is the main component of my collections because I feel it is classically American.

Experimental Collection

My second collection is an experimental collection in which I aimed to recreate a dress of a working woman from the 18th century would wear. The construction is as historically accurate as I could accomplish with the resources and time I had, while the patterns and styling are inspired by the hobbits of Tolkien’s Middle Earth, who wore similar costumes in the movies.
