Wearable Art

Class of: 2027

Major: Architectural Design BFA

Medium: Bristol Paper and Thread

Faculty: Aviva Maya Shulem

Prompt: The "Wearable Art" project aims to create a visually stunning and one-of-a-kind wearable art piece by utilizing the Bristol board as the primary material and implementing tessellation as the vital technique. The project aims to combine artistic expression with precise geometry, leading to a captivating wearable art piece encouraging discourse about the interrelation of art, geometry, and fashion.

For this project I designed two separate long sleeve pieces, that emphasize the beauty of long hands and wide shoulders. A wearable piece that will help cure insecurities and highlight femininity and beauty. Additionally, this project let me experiment with the laser lab and first hand creating clothes out of unique materials. I was largely inspired by the Slavic culture and wide, parachute sleeves. The floral pattern was too born from my own Slavic connections , it added a sense of naturalism, beauty and elegance.
