Abstract

Inspiration for this design came during a torrential downpour in Hong Kong. The purpose of the design was to create a garment structure that would give form to the ideas of raindrops and waterfall which are inherent in the fabric surface design. The concept for the garment was a sculptural, cocktail-length, real dress that could be worn to an art or fashion gala event in an urban city in Asia, Europe or the United States.
