3rd year design and make project

The brief for our 3rd year design & make project was "couture craft". For this I was inspired by lingerie and pleating, and my aim was to create something very subtle & simple using sheer & delicate fabrics. As part of the module we had to do a styled photograph & here are mine. I shot them in Jesmond Dene, with the beautiful Kate modelling my garment. I wanted it to be sexy but in a very subdued & subtle way. The garment is 100% silk, & I used machine embroidery with silk thread on the waistband and under bust band.
