COLOUR PALETTES

I came up with two colour palettes and choose the red palette to make my final garment.

RED PALETTE

YELLOW PALETTE


COCKTAIL PARTY After taking the inspiration as Ladybug I thought of following a theme for building up the whole mood for the garment which I was going to make. So, I thought of taking up cocktail party as my theme for the garment. A very festive them with a get together with friends was what I was looking for. This collage of pictures is a suggestion of the theme wher the garment can be worn.


SKETCHES


After I selected my inspiration and worked out the mood board and theme board, the next step was to develop the concepts on the paper. This was done keeping in mind the form of the Ladybug. The hemisphere was the main lead for me to make the sketches.

After developing these sketches I selected the following sketch that I took forward and made the ‘Maadarpat/Muslin’ garment for the trial. I refined the final sketch before developing the Muslin fit. After I was done with the trial garment I took it forward and made the final garment using cotton satin for the base and velvet beads for the string attachments.
