Annndd here we have the water natural disasters. again
is the one who basically gave me the info on each dress's concept/"philosophy"
first up, is whirlpool. We have an obvious vortex with the drapey collar, but the rest of the gown is ombred into a black abyss, as no one knows where the stuff that falls into a whirlpool ends up, so i incorporated that as the gown spreads out into the wide unknown (geez im so poetic). the bodice of the gown is comprised of woven/interlocking fabric strips that form a tight center, but features the skin underneath, the strips are there for structural integrity
second is tsunami. the main concept about this was balance and imbalance, as tsunamis actually retracts before they hit again (or something like that). I captured this by playing off the balance of the dress, matching the rhythm of the look to that of a tsunami. shoes are sand colored because beach. i layered a turquoise sheer over the gown (the top portion is supposed to mimic a wave) as tsunamis happen when small waves in the deep ocean are pushed upwards as they hit shallower land (and obviously the shallower water is lighter...also has a beautiful turquoise tinge)
third is water spout. its like a water tornado or so to speak. i mimiced the original tornado design with the collar and the wrapping of the fabrics, but made it more water-based. the sheer layer speaks more towards water (which is transparent), and also refers to the flowy and delicate nature of water spouts (which are very weak disasters). the sheer layer goes underneath the entire gown actually, ending in little sleeves. the shoes are printed with a swirly design, since when water spouts form they create these weird circlely things.
btdubs the earth is made up of 75% water woot woot.
