Abstract

The goal was to design a gown for a vivacious woman who attends philanthropic social events and desires a lively aesthetic through creative fiber arts techniques. A secondary goal for the designers was to highlight a unique piece of snow-dyed 100% silk charmeuse while keeping the 5 yards intact for potential future reuse in another garment.
