Abstract

The inspiration for my garment came completely from African fabrics that were donated by former alum. The dress design was developed for an experimental apparel design class and was completed in May 2013. The garment itself is not a representation of traditional African dress, but is a fashion statement. The statement is made through taking traditional African fabrics to create a garment influenced by the 50s fashion and elegance, reminiscent of a Dior gown.

Keywords: draping, Experimentation, design, and Africa
