WOMANNAMOW INNI THEeHT mirrorrorrim This present work is about finding a proper technological means (therefore my use of anaglyph print) to support and enhance a presentation of a womanâ€™s true self by showing her personality various sides as mirror images. My intention is to create a design that has a conceptual meaning and purpose that can help the wearer to communicate, though nonverbally, with the viewer.
AN EMOTIONAL WOMAN:
A FRAGILE WOMAN:
romantic humane dreamer strong alive alone
doll like gentle naive private person ladylike graceful
COTTON She is a woman who is kind. She imagines how things should be and wants something more from life. She is humane, but her emotions make her stronger. She simphatises, loves and hates with the same intensity. COTTON, SILK, She is brave and afraid at the same time = sarcastic. She needs emotions in order to live!
She is a kind soul, who seeks to be protected and cherished. She has a sensitive nature. She hides her flaws and strives for perfection. There is fragile feel to her.
A SEDUCTIVE WOMAN:
A MASCULINE WOMAN:
she is Venus perfect feminine independent ferotic vulgar
strong independent rational hides she is a boss vulgar
silk cotton JERSEY
She is a woman who seeks and cherishes her freedom. She follows her desire! She wants to be noticed and desired. She is subject to her desire. She is true to herself and respects only her own boundaries!
She is a woman who seeks recognition as a professional and a person. She wants to be valued and respected! She hides her fragile side. She wants to prove herself equal and even stronger. She is independent and relies on no one.
AN ECCENTRIC WOMAN: irrational adventurer fun open minded brave alive
She is a woman who can change her moods instantly. She has an eccentric personality. She loves life and is quick to smile. She is honest and true to herself and the people she loves. She is not afraid of the moment, because it leads to something new.
A TRUE WOMAN: an actress a dilemma feminine independent fragile, but strong eccentric and rational
She is a woman in constant dillema - she wants to be understood and at the same time to be an enigma. She wants her life to have meaning, to leave a mark! She is subject to the moment.

“SHADOW PLAY” Shadows create images that can be used as a pattern on a fabric and through it creates illusions. Illusions in their turn can affect person’s emotions and perspective.
With every stage of prototyping I am finding different problems I need to find solution for in order for the prototypes to respond to and present my idea better.

HOLLY-WOOD Evolution/Revolution The evolution of shape/structure and revolution in the perception directly participate in the fashion process. Fashion plays with shape - changing it, using it, manipulating it. Revolution means new thinking and imagination of people. Revolution as well as evolution changes the shape, the meaning, and the function. In the collection I use both terms, combining their various meanings. I seek connection between nature and city environment.
