The aim of the project is to design and produce a bridal wear collection that is affordable, sustainable and can be re worn without the unnecessary need to ‘shorten it and wear it again’. These aims were met through the use of a survey that was completed online by current and future brides. Upon review of the survey I obtained the relevant information regarding their preferred dress styles, fabrics and colours which in turn influenced the collection and final designs that were produced. The final design was sustainable, affordable and could be worn many different ways through changeable features within the outfit.
These two designs are my chosen final designs for production.
The left is the commercial design produced using sustainable fabrics. This outfit is comprised of an off the shoulder top with adjustable sleeves and a skirt that can be transformed into trousers with a lace skirt overlay.
The right design is the upcycled design produced using bedding and lace curtains. This outfit is comprised of a bodysuit with a double layered three tiered detachable skirt.
