School ; Textiles

Material : basic fabric - beige booklinen (what bookcovers are made of), middle part and behind the bookcover fabric - white silk organza, embroidery - blue yarn.

All about the textiles and materials: a textiles dress inspired on a ornamental aspect. I was searching for an organic something as ornament, so i came up with old books. I used the back and the bookbinding as an inspiration. I wanted to show the fragility what comes with old books, like a touch can do let them fall apart. Also the sort of clean way paper gives as a contrast, and yet still works together.

As technique i used a lasercutter, i drew a sketch based on the cratches on old books and cut them at the right part of the dress. The booklinen i attacked with sand paper for the rough/used effect, then sprayed with stonespray (yes, a spray that makes things looks like stone) an ombre over the whole dress from up to bottom. As for seam under the arms and the back, i've made a bookbinding with silk organza (it takes hours). I'm very pleased with the results, how about you? Share your opinion!
