Project Name

Culture Clash - Art Deco

Materials used:

White satin dress, with applique and embroidery detailing and mesh pleats

My intended message behind my work is in relation to the contextual sources that has influenced my project. This being the flapper girls breaking the rules and showing their independence as well as confidence. I see this as empowering and a point in time where women acted and fought for their rights. I aimed to maintain this empowerment in my work and continue to encourage others and support the women of this time that supported women as a whole. To do this I included messages on my fabric through applique and embroidery to make the meaning behind my work obvious to the viewer. I hope the audience will feel inspired by my work and pass on the purpose of empowering other women.
